Generally, these individuals remain residents of NJ per the guidelines in SI 01410.030. However, NJ does not certify or exercise control over out-of-state facilities. Therefore,
the NJ OSS A is rarely appropriate for NJ residents physically located in other states.
The non-congregate care NJ OSS corresponding as closely as possible to the individual's
actual living arrangement is appropriate. In the majority of cases, this would be
an OSS B for adults and for children (see SI 01410.030D.1.).
Requests for payment of a NJ congregate care rate by individuals residing in out-of-state
facilities should be brought to the attention of the Center for Programs Support.
