Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022
(a) This chapter is concerned only with
hearing aids for eligible beneficiaries of the New Jersey Medicaid/NJ
FamilyCare program. It is the intent of the program to furnish hearing aids and
related services to eligible beneficiaries who can benefit from them.
(b) When a hearing aid is authorized and
purchased on behalf of a Medicaid beneficiary, ownership of the hearing aid
will vest in the Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services. The
beneficiary will be granted a possessory interest for as long as the
beneficiary requires use of the aid. When the beneficiary no longer needs the
aid, possession and control will revert to the Division. The beneficiary shall
sign an agreement to this effect as part of the process of authorizing purchase
of the hearing aid.
