V. AUTOMATED NOTICES

REISSUED 02/01/11 – CHANGE NO. 03-11

V. A.3. (CONT’D)

    A. General Information

      1. EIS produces an automated notice (DSS-8110) the night the transfer to Pay Type 4 or 5 processes in the system unless “Y” is entered for “NOTICE OVERRIDE”.
      2. The CHANGE CODE entered on the DSS-8125 determines the text of the notice.
      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.
      6. For transfers to payment type 5, EIS also produces a Notice of Transitional Benefits (DMA-5083) and encloses it with the DSS-8110. If you override the automated notice and send a manual notice when you complete a transfer to payment type 5, you must include the DMA-5083, Notice of Transitional Benefits, with the manual DSS-8110.

    B. Adequate Notice

      1. “Adequate” is clearly 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 clearly indicated at the top of the notice.
      2. To produce an automated timely notice, you must complete the DSS-8125 and key it 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.

REISSUED 02/01/11 – CHANGE NO. 03-11

V. A. (CONT’D)

        Example: A DSS-8125 indicating a transfer to Transitional Medicaid effective October 2003 and a timely reason code is keyed September 12, 2003. The eleventh workday is September 29, 2003. The keying deadline is September 25, 2003. EIS changes the effective date to November 2003.

      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 actually process in EIS until the eleventh county workday, it is possible to stop the action. To do so, you must delete the action that is on hold in EIS. The deletion must occur no later than the eleventh county workday from the date of the notice.

        Delete the pending action using one of the following methods.

        a. Delete the DSS-8125.
        b. 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
        c. 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.
        d. See EIS 4900, Data Entry Appendix E.

          NOTE: FORM ID NUMBERS ARE LISTED ON THE NOTICE REGISTERS AND ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH INQUIRY IN NCXPTR FOR 24 WORKDAYS AFTER THE DSS-8125 IS KEYED.

          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

        It is important to note that there is another situation where an action pending in EIS is stopped.

REISSUED 02/01/11 – CHANGE NO. 03-11

V. A. (CONT’D)

        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.

        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.
