Relating to the temporary continuation of medical assistance for certain individuals.
This bill would authorize temporary continuation of medical assistance for some individuals eligible for TANF or SSI who experience an increase in income of a duration of one month or less. The Health and Human Services Commission would recertify an individual that was determined ineligible for assistance due to a temporary increase in income of a month or less not later than the 90th day after the date on which the individual is deemed ineligible or the error is discovered, if applicable.
The House amended this bill on the floor to make this only apply to an individual who either receives services through a program for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities or resides in an ICF-IID facility and continues to meet the functional and diagnostic criteria for the receipt of services.
