0525.005.00 Annual Review

Reviews of BP cases are to be done annually. The review should be completed through the mail. A face-to-face interview is not required. A review can be completed without a review form (IM- 2U), if all the information is obtained. If eligibility can be established from information in existing records (Food Stamps, spouse’s MA case, etc.), a review form is not necessary. A case may not be closed for failure to return a review form, or complete an annual review, if continued eligibility can be established based on available information from other sources.

When completing a review, resource documentation and the eligibility determination should be recorded.
