ACWDL 08-59: Removal of the other health coverage codes from the MEDS for adults and children who have left homes where they have been victims of domestic violence (12/23/2008)

This letter clarifies the procedures counties need to follow to have an other health coverage code removed from a beneficiary’s account when he or she has survived domestic violence and the abuser is the person who has the other health coverage. To have the code removed counties can either e-mail or call TPL with the survivor’s name, CIN, and date of birth, name of the insurance carrier, and a statement indicating that the other health insurance is blocking access to care for the abused victims.
