When a claimant’s living arrangement/address is changed, a complete re-evaluation of the claimant’s needs must be completed to determine continued eligibility.
The action taken will depend upon the new living arrangements and the age of the child. Explore all available options for the child (i.e., MAF, MC+ for children, MA, JCAHO, NF, IMR, etc.).
Follow the procedures outlined for the applicable program providing the specific Title XIX coverage needed. (i.e., placement into a certified IMR facility, a certified nursing facility, and/or JCAHO inpatient psychiatric treatment.)
