EIS 1056 - COMMON NAME DATABASE

REVISED 08/01/04 - CHANGE NO. 01-05

The Common Name Database includes all Individual IDs assigned in the Eligibility Information System (EIS) or Food Stamp Information System (FSIS). The Individual ID can be included in a pending, denied or withdrawn application, in an active or terminated case, or have no associated EIS activity. When there is no EIS activity associated with an ID, it may be because the ID has just been assigned, EIS history has been purged, or there is only FSIS history. EIS displays only EIS activity. You must inquire in FSIS to view Food Stamp activity.

It is intended that only one Individual ID is assigned to a specific individual, even though they may receive benefits under that ID in more than one Case ID during their lifetime. Assignment of only one Individual ID to a specific individual prevents duplicate benefits from being issued in EIS, since an Individual ID can only be active in one case at a time. The Individual ID also is a tracking mechanism for Medicaid eligibility for each individual on a case. When more than one Individual ID is assigned, tracking periods of eligibility is complicated and may cause Medicaid claims to be denied.

An application cannot be entered into EIS unless every person on the application has an Individual ID. This includes individuals who are casehead/payees only.

When an individual applies for assistance, always complete Name Search using all names the person has ever used. If the SSN is available, always include it in your search criteria. If it is determined through Name Search that an individual has a previously assigned Individual ID, use this ID number for the current application. If multiple matches are found, see Section II, Multiple Individual ID Resolution, within this section. If no match is found, an Individual ID must be assigned. The Name Search function is used to assign Individual Ids.

Absent parents referred to IVD must also have an EIS Individual ID identified/assigned before beginning the referral to IVD. You may complete Name Search for the absent parent(s) at the same time you search the rest of the family group. If the absent parent’s name, race, sex and date of birth are known, the EIS Individual ID may be identified/assigned in the Common Name Database. If all required data is not known, the EIS Individual ID may be identified/assigned in the Absent Parent Database, which is accessed from the Common Name Database. See II. in this section for instructions.

These procedures are designed to prevent assignment of duplicate IDs and issuance of duplicate benefits to the same individual. If you discover that two or more Individual IDs have been assigned to an individual see Section III., Multiple ID Resolution, within this section. If you find that Individual IDs have been combined in error, contact the Division of Medical Assistance, Claims Analysis Unit. Refer to EIS 1200 for the Mailing address and telephone number.

II. ABSENT PARENT DATABASE

    The Absent Parent Database includes individuals who are referred to Child Support (IVD) as absent parents, but whose entire name, race, sex and/or date of birth are not known at the time the referral is completed. You must identify or assign an individual ID to each absent parent before beginning the referral to IVD in EIS. You may enter absent parent data when completing name search/ID assignment for the entire family group or complete a separate search. Make every attempt to identify an existing individual ID, just as you would for an applicant for benefits. Duplicate individual IDs for absent parents create duplicate cases in ACTS and may delay action on the child support case.

    If you identify multiple potential matches, it may be helpful to perform inquiry into ACTS for additional information. If you identify an individual in ACTS who appears to be a potential match, you may be able to determine if this is the same person based on the children or client in the ACTS case.

      3. The first NAME/SSN SEARCH screen displays with the matching or newly assigned ID.

    D. Updating Individual Data

        Individuals on the absent parent database do not have complete data necessary to reside on the Common Name Database. EIS updates IDs in the Absent Parent Database two ways:

      • ACTS may send additional data for a specific absent parent

REISSUED 01/01/09 - CHANGE NO. 02-09

II. D. (COND’T)

      • The EIS worker may change or add data.

      You may update race, sex, date of birth and/or SSN for an individual on the Absent Parent Database. If you receive additional name information for an absent parent, send a NOTEPAD to the IVD agent via the IVD Menu in EIS.

      To update individual data for an absent parent, enter known data on the first EIS NAME/SSN SEARCH screen. Press ENTER. Verify the absent parent is not displayed on the list of potential matches from the Common Name Database. (If the absent parent is displayed on the Common Name Database, perform Name Change to update/change individual data.) Press PF4 twice to continue to the absent parent database. EIS displays the list of potential name matches. Enter X to the left of the matching ID. EIS displays updated individual data on the first EIS NAME/SSN SEARCH screen.

      If the individual’s complete name, sex, race, and date of birth are present, the ID moves automatically to the Common Name Database. The ID displays the alpha character at the end of the ID.

iii. MULTIPLE INDIVIDUAL ID RESOLUTION

    When multiple Individual IDs are identified either for the same individual or different individuals whose Individual IDs have the same SSN, use the following instructions to determine which ID to use and how to correct/change data on the other ID(s).

    WARNING: Changing data on an Individual ID changes all active/inactive cases for that individual in EIS and FSIS, as well as pending forms in EIS. Do not change data on an Individual ID without coordinating with any other workers involved. This applies to data changed through the Name Change function as well as the SDX/EIS exception process.

    A. Multiple Individual IDs for Same Individual

      When an individual has eligibility history in EIS associated with an Individual ID, always use that ID. Using another ID causes problems with Medicaid claims and does not facilitate a complete record of eligibility history.

REISSUED 01/01/09 - CHANGE NO. 02-09

III. (CONT’D) MULTIPLE INDIVIDUAL ID RESOLUTION

      Due to the conversion to the Common Name Database and inadequate Name Searches, an individual may have multiple Individual Ids. Use the following instructions to determine which Individual ID to use, and when to combine IDs if appropriate. Currently, there is no process to combine IDs unless both have EIS Eligibility History associated with them

      2. Different Individuals have same SSN associated with their IDs:

        Identify the correct SSN for each individual. Use the case record, MCI, Food Stamp record, etc. Use the Name Change function to correct the SSN or enter zeroes for SSN if the correct SSN cannot be identified. If the individual is an active recipient, initiate procedures to obtain a valid SSN.

        If the individual with the incorrect SSN is an SSI recipient, call EIS/DMA staff. Refer to EIS 1200 for contact information.

IV. CASE ID SEARCH

    A. General Information

      This function is used to identify all individuals associated with the same Case ID in an existing case.

      EIS assigns all individuals to a group. A group is all individuals on a case, including casehead/payees only. An individual can be in more than one group.

      When you delete an individual at application approval or later delete one or more individuals from the active case, EIS updates the group automatically and deletes the person(s).

      When you add an individual to an existing case, EIS updates the group automatically to include the new person(s).

    B. Access Procedures

      From the Name/SSN Search screen, enter the EIS Case ID in the CASE ID field or enter the Individual ID for an individual on a pending application who has never been included in a case. Press ENTER. All individuals in the group display, including the casehead/payee only, if any. This screen is for display only. You may not select an individual for further searches.

V. CHANGES TO DATA IN THE COMMON NAME DATABASE

    A. General Information

      1. Changes to an individual’s name, race, sex, date of birth, ethnicity, language preference, and SSN are made in the Common Name Database using the Name Change function.
      2. The CURRENT field, SSI indicator, EIS County, and FIS County are DISPLAY ONLY fields. You cannot change them on this screen.
      3. You may change the race, ethnicity, and language preference for an individual whose SSI indicator is Y. If you attempt to change any other data for an SSI recipient, EIS displays an error message: INDIVIDUAL CANNOT BE UPDATED DUE TO SSI. If data is incorrect, consult the appropriate policy manual for instructions.
      4. You may key multiple changes for an individual on the same day, however, you may enter only one change at a time.

REVISED 01/01/09 – CHANGE NO. 02-09

V. A. (CONT’D)

      5. When changing the date of birth on the Name Change Screen for HSF, IAS, MIC (including NCHC), MAA, MAD, MRF, RRF, SAA, SAD, and SCD, and there is a DSS-8125 pending for an action other than a termination, you must first delete the pending DSS-8125 before the date of birth can be changed. If you attempt to change the date of birth before deleting the DSS-8125, EIS displays the error message: TO MAKE CHANGE ON DOB, YOU MUST DELETE 8125 FORM. Keying the DSS-8125 after the date of birth change ensures the action processes through the appropriate age edits in EIS.
      6. Piedmont Counties
        a. When a date of birth is changed from being UNDER age three TO being OVER age three, on the last workday of the calendar month:
          (1) EIS automatically adds the “P” indicator effective the ongoing month. If a review is due and the certification period has ended (there is not an IE segment for the ongoing month), a "P" indicator is added to the IE and IP screens for the three year old when the new certification period is entered.
          (2) EIS sends a Piedmont enrollment notice to the casehead. If a case contains twins or two children that turn age three in the same month, the casehead is sent two Piedmont letters (one for each child) and the case is listed twice on the Piedmont notice register. The Piedmont Notice Register is in NCXPTR: DHRWDB PIEDMONT HLTH PLAN NOTICE.
        b. When a date of birth is changed from being OVER age three TO being UNDER age three, on the last workday of the calendar month, EIS automatically removes the “P” indicator effective the ongoing month.
        c. On the last work day of each month there are three daily Piedmont Notice Register reports for that day.
          (1) Daily transactions that processed,
          (2) County transfers, and
          (3) Children who became three years old during the month. The Piedmont Notice Register is: DHRWDB PIEDMONT HLTH PLAN NOTICE.

V. C. (CONT’D) CHANGES TO DATA IN THE COMMON NAME DATABASE

        The SSN you entered is already in the Common Name Database in another ID. Check to ensure the correct number is entered. Refer to III. above to resolve multiple IDs with the same SSN.

        INDIVIDUAL DID NOT COMPLETE NAME CLEARANCE

        Ensure the ID number is entered correctly. If so, change only one item at a time, like first name, date of birth, etc. If too much data changes, Name Search does not recognize the individual as the same.

      5. When the change processes, EIS displays the message: UPDATE COMPLETE.
      6. EIS updates the individual data on:
        a. the Common Name Database,
        b. any pending forms DSS-8124 and/or DSS-8125,
        c. the Individual Data segment(ID),
        d. the casehead/payee name on all cases for which this person has been designated as casehead/payee in Name Search and
        e. the active Food Stamp case. The Food Stamp case updates during the second nightly cycle after the Name Change processes.

        Example: Name Change screen completed August 20. Change is passed to FSIS August 20 and processes in FSIS the night of August 21. On August 22, the FSIS case displays the new data.

      7. An application turnaround (DSS-8124) and/or an EIS case profile is produced that night (same day Name Change screen processed) and mailed to the county the next workday.

      NOTE: Changes to Race, Ethnicity, and Language do not generate an application turnaround.

      8. A replacement Medicaid identification card is produced that night (same day Name Change screen processed) and mailed to the casehead/payee the next workday.
      9. FSIS Changes

        When an individual is active with the same Individual ID in EIS and in FSIS, changing an individual’s name, sex, date of birth or SSN in one system automatically changes it in the other.

        Changes in either system update the CNDB on-line immediately. The change is passed to the other system during the nightly batch update.

    D. ALERTS-CRITICAL CHANGE REPORTS

      FSIS workers may change name, date of birth, race, sex, and Social Security Number through the FSIS Name Search function for any individual. When individual data changes in FSIS, the change updates the Common Name Database, also. When individual data changes in the CNDB for an EIS individual, EIS updates the changed information that night. EIS updates the case database (CD), individual database (ID), any pending forms DSS-8124 and DSS-8125 and the casehead/payee name, if appropriate, with the new information. EIS generates a DSS-8124I (Application Turnaround) and/or Case Profile, as appropriate, which is mailed to the county dss the next workday.

      If the individual in FSIS is active or pending in EIS, EIS generates an ALERT to the EIS worker to notify them of the change whenever the individual’s last name or date of birth changes due to a change made in FSIS. The ALERT is printed on 8 1/2 by 11 paper the night the change processes in EIS and mailed from Raleigh the next workday.

VI. PAYEE SEARCH

    A. GENERAL INFORMATION

      This function searches caseheads for established cases only (active or terminated). All caseheads are included in the search, whether they are recipients in the case or not. Applicants are not included. (Use Name Search to inquire on a pending application.) PAYEE SEARCH is a good way to locate clients when all that is known is the name and you know that they are active in a specified county. The name must exactly match the way it is spelled in EIS. There is no SOUNDEX in Payee Search. Payee Search also allows a search by Individual ID Number.

    B. ACCESS PROCEDURES

      1. From the INQUIRY MENU, select PS (PAYEE SEARCH). EIS displays the following screen:

To search all cases for which this person is payee in the specified county, include county number in your search criteria. To search all cases for which this person is payee statewide, do not include county number in your search criteria. Press ENTER.

        If there is a match, EIS displays the following screen:

        If more matches are found than can be displayed on one screen, press PA1 for the next page. You may not page back.

      NOTE: EIS displays the most current EPICS claim Indicator in the EPICS CLM field for each individual. THE CLAIM INDICATOR MAY CHANGE EACH TIME AN INQUIRY IS PERFORMED.

      Note: There is no option to SELECT an individual from the listing. However, you may key any valid SELECTION at the bottom of the screen, including PS to return to Payee Search.
