0905.015.10 MC+ HEALTHCARE COVERAGE END DATE ON CLOSINGS

IM-#63 June 18, 2004

MC+ healthcare coverage (Medicaid) is date-specific for MAF recipients at the time of closing.  All individuals on a MAF case are date-specific and can be closed with a future date, up to the last day of the month following the month the closing action is entered into the system.

To remove an individual from a case that remains active, make the following entries in IMU5:

  • Enter a “C” in Field 13G (level of care) and
  • Enter the date of ineligibility for the individual in field 13E.

If closing more than one person, the date in Field 13E can be different for each person.

To enter a future date closing of an entire MAF case, make the following entries in IMU5:

  • Enter the closing case action and reason in IMU5;
  • Enter the date of ineligibility in Field 43 of the IMU5;
  • Do NOT put a “C” or closing date for each individual.

When doing a future date closing for either an individual or whole case, if no date is entered in IMU5, coverage will end on the date of the closing.  If a date earlier than the current date is entered, the system will end coverage on the date of the closing.
