MEDICAID ANALYTIC EXTRACT (MAX) UNIFORM ELIGIBILITY CODE FOR THE MEDICAID ELIGIBLE - FOR THE MONTH OF SERVICE.

Comments

USER NOTE: MSIS 'MAINTENANCE-ASSISTANCE-STATUS' (MAS) IS POSITION #1 AND 'BASIS-OF-ELIGIBILITY' (BOE) IS IN POSITION #2. CODING IS THE SAME AS IN 1996- 98 MAX FILES, EXCEPT THAT VALUES 51-55 ARE ADDED FOR 1999 AND VALUE 3A IS ADDED FOR 2000. THERE MAY BE SMALL NUMBERS OF RECORDS WITH INCONSISTENT VALUES BECAUSE MSIS HAS NO MAS/BOE CONSISTENCY CHECKS. PRIOR TO THE END OF THE AID TO FAMILIES WITH DEPENDENT CHILDREN (AFDC) PROGRAM, GROUPS 14-17 WERE AFDC CASH RECIPIENTS.

SOURCE: THIS CODE WAS DERIVED BY USING MONTHLY OBSERVATIONS OF 'MONTHLY MAX UNIFORM ELIGIBILITY GROUP' IN THE MAX PERSON SUMMARY FILE AND SELECTING THE MONTHLY VALUE WHICH CORRESPONDS TO THE ENDING MONTH FOR THIS SERVICE. IT IS BLANK FILLED IF NO ELIGIBILITY IS RECORDED FOR THAT MONTH.
