The following explains the error profile process and how couple's cases are profiled.
The following explains how profiles based on error scores are determined.
A computer program determines the number of changes that has occurred on a record.
Cases are given a score based on the estimated amount of change.
Records are ranked by scores.
Profile codes are assigned according to rank.
UC profile cases are selected from living arrangement FLA B cases.
These RZs are selected based on specific case characteristics. Error scores are not
considered for these profiles.
EXAMPLE: Profile K RZs are selected because of a critical birthday. They are selected the
month the individual turns 18.
Couple's cases are profiled based on the score of the primary member. The SSR and
the RZ/LI Listings on SUMS/MCAS/MI Central show the profile code of the primary member
of the couple. If the primary member is in denial or non-pay status, the profile is
based on the score of the other member.
The following describes the different kinds of profiles.
The unredetermined case (UC) profile is:
For recipients who have never been redetermined; and
Are in Federal Living Arrangement B.
NOTE: Cases profiled as UC RZs but not selected are subject to selection in the subsequent
fiscal year's post-eligibility (PE) selection process.
PE profiles are:
For recipients who have had a previous RZ or were previously profiled as UC's but
Based on error scores; and
Coded high-error, middle-error, or low-error profiles (i.e., HEP, MEP, or LEP).
NOTE: Federal living arrangement D (FLA D) cases are selected only if they meet HEP criteria.
The UC profile code and its error category are described below:
