A. The Pickle chart is revised to show the Index figure for January 2009 through December 2009 is “1”. Clients who lost their SSI in 2009 cannot be Pickle eligible in 2010 because there is no percentage by which to reduce their current SSA benefits.
Manual: Aged, Blind, and Disabled Medicaid
Change No: 06-10
To: County Directors of Social Services
Effective: Upon Receipt
Make the following change(s)
Because there was no SSA COLA in 2010, there will be no passalong for those who lost their SSI in 2009.
Change Notice 03-10 raised MQB resource limits to $6,600 for an individual and $9,910 for a couple. When the income chart in MA-2260, Financial Eligibility Regulations – PLA, was revised to reflect this change, it was inadvertently made to appear that the resource limits for MWD were also being raised to these amounts.
This policy is effective upon receipt.
Insert: MA-2110, Passalong, Attachment 3.
Insert: MA-2260, Financial Eligibility Regulations – PLA, pages 14 and 15.
