DATE: MARCH 29, 2008
Manual: Aged, Blind, and Disabled Medicaid
Change No: 13-08
To: County Directors of Social Services
MA-2140, Qualified Medicare Beneficiaries-B, was written as a corollary to MA-2130, Qualified Medicare Beneficiaries-Q. MA-2140, by inference to MQB-Q, implies that an a/r is to be evaluated for all Medicaid categories; however, it is not explicitly stated.
MA-2140, Qualified Medicare Beneficiaries-B, is revised to state that an individual must have his eligibility determined under all Medicaid categories for which he might qualify.
This policy will be effective April 1, 2008. Apply this policy to any applications or redeterminations now in progress or taken or started after April 1, 2008.
If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact your Medicaid Program Representative. For any issues that are not able to be handled through that venue, Mrs. Angela Floyd, Assistant Director for Recipient and Provider Services, will be your point of contact and can be reached at (919) 855-4000.
