FORMS MANUAL REVISION #3, IM-1U
|The IM-1U Form has been revised for use
in reviews of MC+ (children, custodial parent, non-custodial parent and
pregnant women) and Medical Assistance for Families (MAF) eligibility.
A cover letter which contains the MC+ income guidelines has been added
to the form and the questions have been changed to reflect current MC+
policy. Reviews of MAF and MC+ cases are to be done annually.
A review can be completed without the IM-1U, if all the information is obtained. For example this review may be done based on information from a current Food Stamp application, or when a Temporary Assistance review is completed. When a recipient fails to complete a reinvestigation for Temporary Assistance, take action to close the cash and change to MAF only. After taking action to close the cash, send an IM-1U if an MAF review is needed. Refer to Family Healthcare manual section, 0905.025.05.
When completing a review, a new budget, income documentation and eligibility determination should be recorded in the MC+ section. If MC+ healthcare eligibility should change, send the appropriate client notices.
The procedures for adding a person to an
existing MC+ or MAF case are different than Temporary Assistance procedures.
A request to add a person to an existing MC+/MAF case can be received through
the mail or by phone, it does not have to be in writing. The request
to add a person to an existing case can be received as part of the
annual review, or any time a caretaker reports a new person in the home.
Requests may also be received to change the status of a person already
in the home from included to active.
EXAMPLE: Mr. and Mrs. John Smith's son, James age 10 returns to their home after living with his grandmother for the last two years. James has no income of his own and has the same parents as the children currently active on the case. A review is not needed to add James.When adding a person to an active MC+ or MAF case use the following procedure:
Medical Support Cooperation and Referrals for Children being Added to Active MC+ or MAF Cases
If a child being added to an active case
has the same absent parent as any active child in the home, submit an IM-16
to Division of Child Support Enforcement (DCSE). The IM-16 will inform
DCSE that the child has been added along with any other new information
on the absent parent. If the child has a different absent parent
than the other children on the case, send an IM-2E Part 1 with a CSE-201
to the parent/caretaker. The IM-
