WAC 182-510-0010

Effective July 1, 2012

WAC 182-510-0010 What happens to my categorically needy (CN) medical coverage when my Supplemental Security Income (SSI) cash payment is terminated?

  1. Your CN medical coverage (WAC 388-505-0110 ) continues after an SSI cash payment ends when:

    1. Countable income exceeds the SSI income standard due solely to the annual cost-of-living adjustment (COLA); or 

    2. A timely request for a hearing has been filed.  CN medical coverage is continued until Social Security Administration (SSA) makes a final decision on the hearing request and on any subsequent timely appeals.

  2. If your SSI ends your CN medical coverage continues for a period of up to one hundred twenty days while the department reviews your eligibility for other cash or medical programs.

  3. If you are a terminated SSI or SSI-related client, the department will review your disability status when:

    1. You present new medical evidence;

    2. Your medical condition changes significantly; or

    3. Your termination from SSI was not based on a review of current medical evidence.

  4. Children terminated from SSI due to loss of disabled status may be eligible for medical benefits under WAC 388-505-0210.
