Medicaid Code of Administrative Rules, Section #1303, "Application Process for Medicaid Affordable Coverage"
|Title||210||Executive Office of Health and Human Services|
|Part||7566||Medicaid Code of Administrative Rules, Section #1303, "Application Process for Medicaid Affordable Coverage"|
|Type of Filing||Amendment|
|Effective||05/17/2015 to 05/24/2018|
Regulation Authority :
Chapters 40-6 and 40-8 of the Rhode Island General Laws, as amended; Title XIX of the Social Security Act
Purpose and Reason :
EOHHS is amending this rule in order to change the provisions in section 1303.07 related to the time in which the Medicaid agency sends a formal notice to a Medicaid beneficiary upon determination of eligibility. Previous text indicated the notice must be sent “within forty-eight (48) hours.” It is being amended to “within a reasonable time after the determination...” Additionally, provisions are added related to a beneficiary voluntarily withdrawing from Medicaid (see section 1303.04). Other minor editorial changes have also been made to the rule. These rules are promulgated in order to prevent wrongful denial, discontinuance, or interruption of benefits for Medicaid applicants and beneficiaries.
