Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022
(a) It is
essential that the CWA carefully document its verification of all eligibility
requirements. It is extremely important that when reference is made to a
document or source of verification, sufficient information be provided so that
the document or source can be readily identified.
The preferred method of documentation is
inclusion in the case record of the original document, or photocopy of such
document verifying a factor of eligibility.
If the eligibility worker has reviewed but not obtained a copy of a document, a
description of the document and its location shall be included in the case
record to facilitate review of the material, where necessary, by the Division
of Medical Assistance and Health Services.
(c) There shall be instances where the
limited space provided on the application for verification shall be
insufficient to record all relevant facts. It shall then be necessary to
provide whatever further information is needed through narrative recording in
the case record. When this occurs, the eligibility worker shall indicate on the
application that additional information is available in the case record.
