0240.005.30 Temporary Assistance Case Closes

IM-#19 February 20, 2013

If the Temporary Assistance (TA) case closes before the participant completes the drug test, the drug test referral is closed.

When the participant reapplies for TA, the screening question (TADRUG) and the waiver question (DRTWAIV) are asked during the controlled flow, just like all applications. However, when the TA case is approved, the participant is referred for drug test based on the last Highway Patrol match, regardless of how the screening question and the waiver question are answered.
