DHCS MEDIL I 14-25: Screening for Potential MAGI Eligibles Upon Return of the “Redetermination for Medi-Cal Beneficiaries (Long-Term Care in own MBFU)”, (MC 262) (5/7/14)

This letter provides guidance for counties to screen MC 262 forms to see if beneficiaries are potentially eligible for Medi-Cal under MAGI rules.  Counties should collect tax household information, either by phone or by RFTHI, and use the CalHEERS BRE to determine eligibility for MAGI.  If ineligible for MAGI, counties should complete the non-MAGI eligibility determination based on MC 262.

Being screened for MAGI instead of a non-MAGI program does not deprive a beneficiary of long-term care services.
