12VAC30-40-348. Adult group individual income-based determinations.

A. Methodology for identification of applicable federal medical assistance percentages (FMAP) rates. DMAS will determine the appropriate FMAP rate for expenditures for individuals enrolled in the adult group described in 42 CFR 435.119 and receiving benefits in accordance with 42 CFR Part 440 Subpart C. The adult group FMAP methodology consists of two parts: an individual-based determination related to enrolled individuals and, as applicable, appropriate population-based adjustments.

B. Adult group individual income-based determinations. For individuals eligible in the adult group, the Commonwealth will make an individual income-based determination for purposes of the adult group FMAP methodology by comparing individual income to the relevant converted income eligibility standards in effect on December 1, 2009, and included in the Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) Conversion Plan (Part 2) approved by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on February 11, 2014. In general, and subject to any adjustments described in this section, under the adult group FMAP methodology, the expenditures of individuals with incomes below the relevant converted income standards for the applicable subgroup are considered as those for which the newly eligible FMAP is not available.

C. Population-based adjustments to the newly eligible population based on resource test, enrollment cap, or special circumstances.

1. The Commonwealth does not apply a resource proxy adjustment.

2. The Commonwealth does not apply an enrollment cap.

3. The Commonwealth does not apply a special circumstance adjustment.

4. The Commonwealth does not apply any additional adjustment to the adult group FMAP methodology.

D. Individuals previously eligible for Medicaid coverage through a § 1115 demonstration program or a mandatory or optional State Plan eligibility category will be transitioned to the new adult group described in 42 CFR 435.119 in accordance with a CMS-approved transition plan or a § 1902(e)(14)(A) waiver.

E. Applicability of special FMAP rates.

1. The Commonwealth does not meet the definition of an expansion state in 42 CFR 433.204(b).

2. The Commonwealth does not qualify for a temporary 2.2% increase in FMAP under 42 CFR 433.10(c)(7).

F. The Commonwealth attests to the following:

1. The application of the adult group FMAP methodology will not affect the timing or approval of any individual's eligibility for Medicaid.

2. The application of the adult group FMAP methodology will not be biased in such a manner as to inappropriately establish the numbers of, or medical assistance expenditures for, individuals determined to be newly or not newly eligible.
