Iowa Admin. Code r. 441-76.12 - Application not required

Current through Register Vol. 44, No. 20, April 6, 2022

(1) Adding a new person.
a. Adding an eligible person. For members whose eligibility is based on the modified adjusted gross income methodology, a new application is not required when an eligible person is added to an existing Medicaid-eligible group. Such a person is considered to be included in the application that established the existing eligible group. However, in these instances, the date of application to add a person is the date the change is reported. When it is reported that a person is anticipated to enter the home, the date of application to add the person shall be no earlier than the date of entry or the date of report, whichever is later.
b. Adding a person previously ineligible due to a failure to cooperate. In those instances where a person previously ineligible for Medicaid for failure to cooperate in obtaining medical support or establishing paternity as described at 441-subrule 75.14(2) is to be granted Medicaid benefits, the person shall be granted Medicaid benefits effective the first of the month in which the person becomes eligible by cooperating in obtaining medical support or establishing paternity.
c. Adding a person previously ineligible due to failure to provide a social security number. In those instances where a person previously ineligible for Medicaid for failure to provide a social security number or proof of application for a social security number as described at rule 441 -75.7(249A) is to be granted Medicaid benefits, the person shall be granted Medicaid benefits effective the first of the month in which the person becomes eligible by providing a social security number.
d. Adding a person who was voluntarily excluded. In those instances where a person who has been voluntarily excluded from the eligible group in accordance with the provisions of rule 441-75.59 (249 A) is being added to the eligible group, the person shall be added effective the first of the month after the month in which the household requests that the person no longer be excluded.
(2) Reinstatement after cancellation. Eligibility for medical assistance may be reinstated without a new application when all information necessary to establish eligibility, including verification of any changes, is provided within 14 calendar days of the effective date of the cancellation. If the fourteenth calendar day falls on a weekend or state holiday, the member shall have until the next business day to provide the information.
(3) Loss of HAWK-I eligibility. In those instances where a child loses HAWK-I eligibility and has been determined eligible for Medicaid, with no break in coverage, an application for Medicaid is not required.
