DSS ACL 04-14 – Continuation of Medi-Cal Benefits in CalWORKs Intercounty Transfer Cases (April 14, 2004)

This is the companion letter to the DHS ACL [03-12] issued in February 2003. Provides instructions to counties to ensure Medi-Cal benefits continue for cases that are both discontinued from the CalWORKs Program and transferred to another county. Clarifies that counties cannot require individuals to reapply for Medi-Cal or complete a redetermination based solely on the family moving from one county to another. Announces a new DSS form (CW 215A) to be used by the receiving county to request documentation needed to determine the family’s continued Medi-Cal eligibility when the CalWORKs cash aid case is not continued in the receiving county.
