IM-14 02/07/02 BREAST AND CERVICAL CANCER TREATMENT PROGRAM (BCCT) SYSTEM WORK
|BREAST AND CERVICAL CANCER TREATMENT PROGRAM (BCCT) SYSTEM WORK|
|System work has been completed to allow
county staff to approve regular BCCT applications and enter BCCT-PE determinations.
Effective February 11, 2002 it is no longer necessary to contact State
Office to have BCCT eligibility entered in the system. Changes were
made to the system to identify regular BCCT and BCCT-PE cases. To
support this change, other changes were made to IMU5:
A new screen, IBCC, was developed to enter the presumptive eligibility. Upon receipt of a BCC-1 from the BCCCP provider, access the screen by entering IBCC, space, and DCN. A sample of the screen is attached. Entries are self-explanatory. Enter the diagnosis date in the START DATE field. After entering information, STORE COMPLETED, should appear.
Entering presumptive eligibility on the IBCC screen creates a M2 case with an "L" identifier in Field 23. M2 category has been reserved for BCCT-PE only and cannot be used otherwise. Individual eligibility will reflect level of care "T" with an entry of "L" in Field 13g2. The beginning date of eligibility will be the START DATE and eligibility will end the last day of the following month. The ending date of eligibility will appear in Field 32 of the IMU5. The only IMU5 transaction possible on M2 cases will be a closing action. The system will close the M2 case at the end of the eligibility period with reason code 68 (Time Limit Expires) unless already closed. It is necessary to close the M2 case if approving for another category of coverage with a closing reason of "39" Transferred to Other Assistance.
Error messages will appear when accessing IBCC in the following situations:
The BCCT category of assistance will be available on IAPP under MA. However, you may approve a BCCT application for regular MA or a MA for BCCT. A BCCT application (M1) may be registered even if there is an active M2 (BCCT-PE) case active.
To approve an individual for BCCT, enter the following:
Case Action: 02 Open MC+/Title XIX Only or 06 Reopen MC+/Title XIX OnlyIncome and budget information is not required.
Error 284 - MA, SSI NOT A, E, F, OR W will appear if an entry of "W" is not in both fields 13g2 and 23.
When changing eligibility from BCCT to regular MA it is necessary to change the entry in Field 23 and Field 13g2 and make other appropriate entries.
If an active MA spenddown claimant becomes eligible for BCCT, it is not necessary to register a BCCT application. Appropriate entries in field 23 and 13g2 and other necessary fields, the case will be changed to BCCT.
Use normal closing procedures to close a BCCT case. These cases are date specific.
A following closing reason has been added to IMU5 code sheet.
Babies born to BCCT recipients qualify for Newborn status (G loc). However the system will not allow a newborn to be added to a BCCT case. Register a NEWBORN (R type of assistance) application to provide newborn coverage for the infant.
