Chapter 10. State Plan under Title XIX of the Social Security Act Medical Assistance Program; General Provisions

12VAC30-10-150. Amount, duration, and scope of services: Medically needy.

A. This State Plan covers the medically needy. The services described in this section and in Part II (12VAC30-50-40 et seq.) of 12VAC30-50 are provided. Services for medically needy include:

1. If services in an institution for mental diseases (42 CFR 440.140 and 440.160) or an intermediate care facility for the mentally retarded (or both) are provided to any medically needy group, then each medically needy group is provided either the services listed in § 1905(a)(1) through (5) and (17) of the Act, or seven of the services listed in § 1902(a)(1) through (20). The services are provided as defined in 42 CFR 440, Subpart A and in §§ 1902, 1905, and 1915 of the Act.

Subdivision 1 of this subsection is applicable with respect to nurse-midwife services under § 1902(a)(17).

2. Prenatal care and delivery services for pregnant women.

3. Pregnancy-related, including family planning services, and postpartum services for a 60-day period (beginning on the day the pregnancy ends) and any remaining days in the month in which the sixtieth day falls are provided to women who, while pregnant, were eligible for, applied for, and received medical assistance on the day the pregnancy ends.

4. Services for any other medical condition that may complicate the pregnancy (other than pregnancy-related and postpartum services) are provided to pregnant women.

5. Ambulatory services as defined in 12VAC30-50-40 for recipients under age 18 and recipients entitled to institutional services.

6. Home health services to recipients entitled to nursing facility services as indicated in 12VAC30-10-220.

7. Services for the medically needy do not include services in an institution for mental diseases for individuals over age 65.

8. Services for the medically needy do not include services in an intermediate care facility for the mentally retarded.

9. Services for the medically needy do not include inpatient psychiatric services for individuals under age 21, other than those covered under early and periodic screening, diagnosis, and treatment (at 12VAC30-50-130).

10. Services for the medically needy do not include respiratory care services provided to ventilator dependent individuals. See 12VAC30-10-300.

11. Home and community care for functionally disabled elderly individuals is not covered.

12. Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) services as described and limited in Supplement 6 to Attachment 3.1-A (12VAC30-50-320, 12VAC30-50-321, 12VAC30-50-325, and 12VAC30-50-328) are covered.

B. Part II (12VAC30-50-40 et seq.) of 12VAC30-50 identifies services provided to each covered group of the medically needy. (Note: Other programs to be offered to medically needy beneficiaries would specify all limitations on the amount, duration and scope of those services. As PACE provides services to the frail elderly population without such limitation, this is not applicable for this program. In addition, other programs to be offered to medically needy beneficiaries would also list the additional coverage that is in excess of established service limits for pregnancy-related services for conditions that may complicate the pregnancy. As PACE is for the frail elderly population, this also is not applicable for this program.)
