DATE: SEPTEMBER 28, 2004
Manual: Family and Children’s Medicaid
Change No: 07- 05
To: County Directors of Social Services
Effective: October 1, 2004
It is currently difficult for the counties to make classification corrections to North Carolina Health Choice cases during an existing 12 month coverage period. Work began with the BlueCross and BlueShield to allow county case workers to change class, maintenance and income. It was determined that counties need to be able to make corrections into EIS to any Medicaid class within NCHC for the ongoing effective months.
The following changes were made:
A. MA-3255, NC Health Choice, policy is changed to allow for a NCHC case approved into an incorrect classification in error to be changed during the enrollment period, effective the ongoing month.
B. The Attachment 5, Change in Household Situation, chart is changed to reflect the ability to make this code change.
This change is effective October 1, 2004.
