SI 01730.025 Effect of Institutionalization on Medicaid Eligibility
Some States provide Medicaid coverage for patients in a medical facility who would be eligible for SSI payments if they left the facility (FLA D, E01). (See SI 01715.001B.2.c. for a description of this optional Medicaid coverage.)
The State must make Medicaid eligibility determinations for these individuals.
