Change No: 04-06
To: County Directors of Social Services
Effective: January 1, 2006
MA-3405, Twelve Months Transitional Medicaid, has been updated to clarify policy regarding change in situation during the Transitional Medicaid period. When a parent/specified relative reports he stopped working with “good cause” during the Transitional Medicaid period, continue Transitional Medicaid.
Overview of EIS tracking during the transitional period, has been updated to clarify that cases may be terminated, if there is adequate time, prior to the automatic transfer for two months to MAF-C.
Termination or deletion during the Transitional Period has been updated to list the maximum age limit for Work First and NCHC children to alleviate potential errors when terminating or deleting children from these programs/categories.
This change is effective January 1, 2006. Apply this policy to any current or pending applications and to redeterminations.
Remove: MA-3405, Twelve Months Transitional Medicaid, pages 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 19.
