A. MA-1000, SSI Medicaid, is changed to be consistent with Family and Children’s Medicaid MA-3410, Terminations and Deletions. The definition of “current” verification is revised. Current verification is information obtained from an active case. A case in suspense is considered active.
B. Additional time is allowed for recipients to provide information during an ex parte review. If in the process of conducting an ex parte, the county determines additional information is needed, the county allows the recipient 10 days to provide the information. If the recipient needs more time, allow the recipient an additional 10 days to provide the information.
