NOTE: When a financially responsible spouse or parent of a child in the assistance unit returns during the Transitional period, include his gross income in the budget when completing the 185% Poverty Income Level test in the second and third quarter Transitional Medicaid period. Refer to VII.G.5.
REISSUED 11/01/11- CHANGE NO. 15-11
The parent/specified relative is not required to cooperate with Child Support while receiving Transitional Medicaid.
The assistance unit’s income cannot exceed 185% of the Poverty Income Limit in the 2nd and 3rd quarters of Transitional Medicaid. If you determine that the income exceeds the income limit due to an increase in earnings, conduct an ex parte review to evaluate under other aid program/categories.
If the parent/specified relative receives Transitional benefits and the children receive Medicaid in another case, count the income of a parent/specified relative in the children’s case.
For questions or clarification on any of the policy contained in these manuals, please contact your local county office.
