The Medicaid Field Staff brought to our attention county concerns regarding county reassignments/transfers. Counties continue to not follow the procedures for proper notification when transferring a case to another county. In order to provide better customer service to recipients, counties must coordinate this process. We strongly urge the counties to work and communicate with one another.
MA-2221, County Residence, now requires that:
This policy is effective July 1, 2004. Apply this policy to transfers effective September 1, 2004.
If you have any questions, please contact your Medicaid Program Representative.
