Purpose: To explain the rules and procedures when an individual applies for health care coverage and the agency needs other information to determine eligibility.
- Whenever possible, obtain verification by cross-matches and interfaces.
- Do not request a specific form or type of document for verification. Instead, ask for what is needed to determine eligibility. Give or send the individual any departmental or approved local-office forms that would help give us the information we need to determine eligibility. For example, do not request a Stop Work form; request verification of the date the individual received her last pay check and the amount of her last pay check. We may offer the Stop Work form for the individual's convenience.
- For regular SSI-related Medicaid, do not request verification of resources when no resources are listed on the application or review form.
