0955.000.00 Medical Assistance for Children in Care (MACC)

0955.005.15 DMH/DYS/Juvenile Court Financial Responsibility

DMH, DYS, or a juvenile court must assume full or partial financial responsibility for the child to be eligible for MACC.

If the child is in a DYS publicly operated community residence such as the DYS group homes, consider that DYS is providing support and maintenance for the child.

If the child is in a DYS foster home, obtain a copy of the foster home contract or other verification of DYS support and maintenance from the Regional Administrator.

If the child is placed in a facility or foster home by DMH, obtain a copy of the contract DMH has with the facility or foster home. Use the contract for verification of whether DMH is providing support and maintenance.
