Available formats:    PDF   |    DOC   |    TXT

For the purposes of this paper, a "special Medicaid beneficiary" is someone who lost SSI payments due to receipt of or increases in Title II benefits (SSDI, CDB, DWB), but who is allowed to retain Medicaid coverage. This paper will not cover the extended Medicaid provisions for persons who lose SSI payments due to earned income, otherwise known as the 1619(b) provisions. For more information about 1619(b) refer to the VCU BARC briefing paper entitled Understanding 1619(b).
