Virginia Administrative Code
Title 12. Health
Agency 30. Department of Medical Assistance Services
Chapter 110. Eligibility and Appeals

12VAC30-110-1220. Scope of coverage.

A. Subject to subsection B of this section, during the 12-month extension period, the amount, duration, and scope of medical assistance made available to a family shall be the same as if the family were still receiving AFDC.

B. The Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS), at its option may, pursuant to the requirements of the Health Insurance Premium Payment Program (HIPP) in Part XII (12VAC30-130-740 et seq.) of 12VAC30-130, pay a family's expenses for premiums, deductibles, coinsurance, and similar costs for health insurance or other health care coverage offered by an employer of the caretaker-relative or by an employer of the absent parent of a dependent child. If an employer offers such coverage to the caretaker-relative:

1. To receive transitional medical assistance coverage for himself and his family, the caretaker-relative shall make application for such employer coverage, but only if:

a. The employer does not require the caretaker-relative to make financial contributions for the coverage (whether through payroll deduction, payment of deductibles, coinsurance, or similar costs, or otherwise); and

b. DMAS provides, directly or otherwise, payment of any of the premium amount, deductible, coinsurance, or similar expense that the employee is otherwise required to pay; and

2. DMAS treats the coverage under the employer plan as a third party liability (as of May 1, 1995, under § 1902(a)(25) of the Social Security Act) (42 USC § 1396a(a)(25)).

C. DMAS shall consider payments for premiums, deductibles, coinsurance, and similar expenses as payments for medical assistance.
