SSI Medicaid Eligibility Rules for Children Under 21 Amended

The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing has amended the Medical Assistance Rules concerning Supplemental Security Income Medicaid eligibility effective dates for children under 21. The purpose of this rule change is to revise the eligibility requirements to incorporate changes in federal law governing the effective date of eligibility for individuals under 21 and to provide criteria for granting eligibility to infants who are found to be disabled shortly after birth.

The proposed language was approved for publication effective September 1, 2008. However, it was subsequently deleted through administrative error effective April 1, 2009. The proposed rule is being presented in order to reestablish the previously approved language.

A hearing on the proposed rules will be held on Friday, October 14, 2011 at The Capitol Center, 225 E. 16th Ave., 6th Floor, Denver, Colorado 80203, beginning at 9:00 am.

Full text of the proposed rules including line edits can be found here. Further information about the rules and hearing can be found here.
