DHS ACL 04-06 – Mid-Year Status Report Implementation (March 2, 2004)

Provides Questions and Answers about implementation of the new Mid-Year Status Report (MSR) requirement. Addresses how counties should process the MSRs, which groups are exempt, and what timelines apply. Clarifies that no exempt beneficiaries (such as children, elderly, and disabled) should lose Medi-Cal when a non-exempt household member fails to return the form. The letter also clarifies that documentation is not required with the MSR and that a beneficiary who is put back on Medi-Cal after termination due to a MSR issue can get retroactive coverage up to three months.
