DHCS ACWDL 13-25: January 2014 Social Security Title II and Title XVI COLA and Related Issues
Reminds counties that Medically Needy Medi-CAl cases with Title II income must have the Share of Cost adjusted effective 1/1/14. Instructions for how to apply the COLA to these cases are included. Importantly, note that the COLA is NOT to be applied to A&D FPL, FPL-Blind, Medicare Savings Programs, 200 Percent Women and Infants, children’s FPL programs – these cases should NOT have the COLA applied until the 2014 FPL rates are published. Also, the COLA should not be applied to MAGI Medi-Cal cases as they have no redeterminations before April 2014. Read the full letter here.
