DHS ACL 03-41 – Medi-Cal Midyear Status Report (MSR) (July 8, 2003)

SB X1 26 implemented midyear reporting requirements effective August 1, 2003 for some Medi-Cal beneficiaries. Beneficiaries that are exempt from the MSR requirements include children under age 21, persons whose basis for eligibility is their status as aged, blind or disabled, and pregnant women whose eligibility is based on pregnancy. Beneficiaries required to report will receive a MSR in the mail and must return it by the 5th day of the next month. The form asks the beneficiary either to report no changes by checking one box or to report changes by answering several questions. No documentation is required to be sent in with the MSR.
