Change No: 07-06
To: County Directors of Social Services
Effective: January 1, 2006
MA-2880, Community Alternatives Program (CAP) Medicaid Eligibility, has been revised to clarify instructions regarding applying medical expenses to a CAP deductible. When applying case management fees toward a CAP applicant/recipient’s deductible, the fee cannot be applied as a single charge unless the specific CAP program bills case management as a monthly amount. If the CAP program bills case management in 15 minute increments, case management cannot be billed prior to the date of service.
This policy is effective January 1, 2006.
