2. The county must determine if the non-county entries on the report are valid or invalid/non-applicable third party resources.
a. If the insurance reported is valid, the county must evaluate for all other Medicaid categories. If ineligible, start the process to terminate the BCCM or NCHC case. See MA-3250, Breast and Cervical Cancer Medicaid or MA-3255 NC Health Choice.
b. If the insurance reported is verified invalid/non-applicable:
(1) Terminate the insurance on the TA Screen/TU Screen.
