SI NY01730.003 (New Jersey) Assignment Of Rights (AOR)
In New Jersey, the application for SSI is also an application for Medicaid. However, the State requires that in order to receive Medicaid, SSI recipients must assign to the State any rights they have to payments for medical care from a third party. Therefore, when an SSI/Medicaid applicant appears eligible, explain the AOR provision - MSSICS screen - BHLT. Refer to POMS SI 01730.040.
