|MC+ WORKING PARENTS|
|EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY any individual applying
for MC+ healthcare coverage as a Custodial Parent or a Non-Custodial Parent
(current in child support payments) must be working to be eligible.
Working is defined as having gross earned income above the Medical Assistance
for Families (MAF) two person percentage of need standard (currently $234.00
a month). In a two parent family, each parent must have earnings
above $234.00 for both to be eligible for coverage. If only one parent
is working, the parent not working is ineligible. There are NO exceptions
to this rule.
No special review is to be done on currently active cases.
