I. COMPLETING THE DSS-8125

I. B. 8. (CONT'D) (TRANSFERRING FROM M-QB TO M-AA, M-AD, OR M-AB)

        It is very important to enter the correct code. Unless overridden, an automated notice is produced based on the change code entered on the DSS-8125. The change code not only determines the text of the notice but also whether the notice is adequate or timely. See AUTOMATED NOTICES at the end of this section for more information regarding the automated notice.

      9. Enter “Y” in NOTICE OVERRIDE if you wish to override the automated notice when:
        a. The change code used from the Codes Appendix is “Other”.
        b. The change code listed in the Codes Appendix is marked with an asterisk (*).
        c. You use the DB/PML screen to issue benefits.
      10. Enter “A” or “D” for MEDICAID STATUS. “A” must be entered if the MEDICAID CLASS is “Q” OR “B”.
      11. If MEDICAID STATUS is entered as “D”, enter the DEDUCTIBLE AMOUNT in the “DED AMT field”. This DEDUCTIBLE AMOUNT will print on the automated notice. Do not enter DEDUCTIBLE AMOUNT if the Notice Override is “Y”.
      12. Enter the MEDICAID EFFECTIVE DATE.
        a. If the MEDICAID CERTIFICATION FROM DATE is not the same as the CERTIFICATION FROM DATE on the M-QB case and:
          (1) The MEDICAID STATUS entered is “D”, the MEDICAID EFFECTIVE DATE must be the same as the CERTIFICATION FROM DATE.
          (2) The MEDICAID STATUS entered is “A”, the MEDICAID EFFECTIVE DATE must be after or the same as the CERTIFICATION FROM DATE and before or the same as the ongoing month. See exception in (3)
          (3) If the eligibility is for months before dual eligibility, these months must be entered on the DB/PML screen with a classification of C, N, or M. NOT Q or B. Refer to EIS 3105 for instructions.

        REVISED 02/01/11 – CHANGE NO. 03-11

I. B. 12. (CONT'D) (TRANSFERRING FROM M-QB TO M-AA, M-AD, OR M-AB)

        b. If the MEDICAID CERTIFICATION FROM DATE is the same as the CERTIFICATION FROM DATE on the M-QB case, the MEDICAID EFFECTIVE DATE must be the same as the ongoing month and after or the same as the CERTIFICATION FROM DATE.
        c. Authorize M-AA, M-AD, or M-AB for months before the CERTIFICATION FROM MONTH using the DB/PML screen. Refer to EIS 3105 for instructions.
      13. Enter the CERTIFICATION PERIOD.
        a. The CERTIFICATION PERIOD must be no longer than twelve months if the MEDICAID STATUS entered is “A”, and no longer than six months if the MEDICAID STATUS entered is “D”.
        b. If the case is transferring from MQB-E, enter the new certification period. The certification period begins the month MAABD is requested. The ongoing MEDICAID CERTIFICATION FROM MONTH must be before or the same as the ongoing month.
        c. The THRU DATE must be no longer than twelve months from the MEDICAID CERTIFICATION FROM DATE.
        d. If the case is transferring from MQB-B/Q the FROM DATE must:
          (1) Be the same as the CERTIFICATION FROM DATE on the existing case; or
          (2) Be the first day of the month following the CERTIFICATION THRU MONTH on the existing case; and
          (3) Be before or the same as the ongoing month.
        e. If the case is transferring from MQB-B/Q the THRU DATE must:
          (1) Represent a period no longer than twelve months from the CERTIFICATION FROM DATE if a new certification period is entered.
          (2) Be before or the same as the CERTIFICATION THRU DATE on the existing case. If the certification period has expired and the CERTIFICATION THRU DATE is before the ongoing month, a new certification period must be entered.
      14. Enter the MEDICAID CLASS even if it is the same. Refer to the Codes Appendix to determine the appropriate code.

III. OUTPUTS

    When the DSS-8125 processes successfully, the following are received:

    A. A Case Profile is produced the night the transfer processes and is mailed to the county the following workday.

    B. DMA-5016(s) is produced the night the transfer processes and is mailed to the facility the next workday if applicable

    C. The aid program/category transfer is reported on the Caseworker Supervisor Report. The number of aid program/category transfers completed is determined from the WORKER NUMBER.

IV. AUTOMATED NOTICES

    A. General Information

      1. An automated notice (DSS-8110A) is produced for all M-QB to M-AA, M-AD, or M-AB transfers the night the DSS-8125 processes in the system unless “Y” is entered for “NOTICE OVERRIDE”. A sample of the DSS-8110A is located at the end of this section.
      2. The TRANSFER CODE entered on the DSS-8125 determines the text of the notice and whether the notice is adequate or timely.
      3. The system calculates the 60th calendar day for the notice.
      4. The date of the automated notice is the next state workday after the DSS-8125 processes. This is the date the notice is mailed to the recipient. A copy of the notice is not mailed to the county.
      5. A Notice Register Report is produced each night and is mailed to the county the following workday. This report lists vital information related to all automated notices produced for that day. See EIS 3556 for more information regarding the Notice Register Report.

    B. Adequate Notice

      1. “Adequate” is indicated at the top of the notice.
      2. The system calculates the 60th calendar day for the notice.
      3. The action indicated on the DSS-8125 takes place in EIS the same night the adequate notice is produced.

    C. Timely Notice

      1. “Timely” is indicated at the top of the notice.
      2. To produce an automated timely notice, you must complete the DSS-8125 and have it keyed into EIS at the same time you would have completed the manual DSS-8110.
      3. The system calculates the tenth county workday and the 60th calendar day for the notice.
      4. The action takes place in EIS eleven county workdays from the date of the notice. If the eleventh county workday falls after the 4th workday from the end of the month, EIS adjusts the month of change to the next benefit month.

REISSUED 02/01/11 – CHANGE NO. 03-11

IV. C. (TRANSFERRING FROM M-QB TO M-AA, M-AD, OR M-AB)

        For example: A DSS-8125 indicating a change from authorized to deductible status with an effective date of March 1992 and a timely reason code is keyed February 12, 1992. The eleventh workday is February 27, 1992. The keying deadline is February 25, 1992. EIS changes the Medicaid Effective Date to April 1992.

      5. No further action is required by you for the action to occur.
      6. An updated Case Profile is produced the night the action takes place in EIS.
      7. Deleting the Action

        Because the action does not process in EIS until the eleventh county workday, it is possible to stop the action. Delete the pending action using one of the following methods.

        a. Submit a copy of the DSS-8125 you sent originally to request the change. Write “DELETE” in red across the top of the form; or
        b. Submit a county form developed for this purpose. This form must contain the form ID number of the original DSS-8125 and a message to Data Entry to delete the form.

        NOTE: FORM ID NUMBERS ARE LISTED ON THE NOTICE REGISTERS AND ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH INQUIRY IN XPTR FOR THREE DAYS AFTER THE DSS-8125 IS KEYED.

        c. See EIS 4900, Data Entry Appendix E.

          This action is reported on the Notice Register for that day. The information related to the automated notice is displayed with “DELETED” noted in the “COMMENTS” column of the register.

      8. Rescinding the Action

        There is another situation where an action pending in EIS is stopped.

        If a subsequent DSS-8125 is keyed by the eleventh county workday from the date of the notice and the subsequent
        DSS-8125 causes a new notice to be produced, the pending action is stopped. In this situation, EIS “rescinds” the pending action and produces an automated notice for the new action.

REISSUED 02/01/11 – CHANGE NO. 03-11

IV. C. 8. (TRANSFERRING FROM M-QB TO M-AA, M-AD, OR M-AB)

        Both actions are reported on the Notice Register for that day. The information related to the first automated notice is displayed with “RESCINDED” noted in the “COMMENTS” column of the register. The information related to the subsequent automated notice is also displayed with no entry in the “COMMENTS” column.

      9. DSS-8125 and Timely Pending Action
        a. A DSS-8125 may not be placed on hold when there is a timely action pending.
        b. A DSS-8125 may be keyed, but if a change code or termination code is present, it will rescind the pending action.
        c. The following data may be keyed up until the day before a timely action is to process without rescinding the pending action:
          (1) County Number
          (2) County Case Number
          (3) District Number
          (4) Address
          (5) RSDI Claim Number
