DATE: OCTOBER 1, 2007
Manual: Aged, Blind, and Disabled Medicaid
Change No: 20-07
To: County Directors of Social Services
Effective: October 1, 2007
It has come to our attention that MA-2270, Long Term Care Need and Budgeting, needs further clarification.
• The DMA-5008B was not changed to reflect the policy in Change No. 12-07, effective 08/01/2007. Change No. 12-07 omitted amending the DMA-5008 Supplement B to correspond with the changed MA-2270 policy.
• The ICF/MR Work Incentive Allowance must change to conform to the General Assembly Bill.
• The telephone number as shown in MA-2270 for the DMA Hearing Office is no longer a valid number. The correct number is 919-647-8200.
The policy changes are effective October 1, 2007. Apply the policy to all applications taken on or after October 1, 2007 or in process and to all redeterminations started on or after October 1, 2007 or currently in process.
