ACES ALERTS


125: PER SDX, CLIENT IS DECEASED


DESCRIPTION

 

This alert generates when ACES receives an SDX record indicating that a SSI CN Waiver or Hospice (L21) client is deceased. The alert contains the following remark line:

 

IF NEEDED, UPDATE LEAVE DT ON INST SCREEN FOR MM/YY.

The MM/YY populates with the death month/year.

 

In this situation, ACES AUTO closes the L21 for all months after the death month.  

 

PROCEDURE

 

1.    If the L21 client is in an Alternate Living Facility (ALF), review the death month and take the appropriate action (such as entering the death date on the INST screen) to correctly recalculate the client’s Room & Board.

 

o    If the client resides in a setting other than an ALF, no action is necessary because SSI clients pay only Room & Board, not participation; so there is nothing to recalculate.

 

2.    Call DONE and commit the data.

 

DISPOSITION

 

Enter [Y] in the D field and <TRANSMIT>.
