DATE: OCTOBER 10, 2003
Manual: Aged, Blind, and Disabled Medicaid
Change No: 08 - 04
To: County Directors of Social Services
Effective: November 1, 2003
We have had a number of questions about how to treat severance pay. MA-2250, Income, has been updated to add severance pay as countable unearned income.
There previously has been no official policy on severance pay. Apply the new policy to applications taken on or after November 1 or currently being processed. Apply the new policy to redeterminations scheduled on or after November 1 or currently being processed.
Remove MA-2250, pages 55 through 58.
Insert attached MA-2250, pages 55 through 58, revised 11/01/03.
If you have any questions, please contact your Medicaid Program Representative.
