Oregon

Wyoming

April 1, 1989

Wyoming's previous State Buy-In Agreement was effective from July 1, 1966 through July 31, 1967; and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands was effective on July 1, 1989.

A number of states, which have bought in for all of their medical assistance recipients under Title XIX, do not provide Title XIX approved medical assistance to the medically needy. In those states, the only noncash recipients who are eligible for State Buy-in (the Medical Assistance Only (MAO) category) are noncash recipients who are categorically needy; e.g., certain institutionalized individuals.

States with 1634 agreements are known as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) auto accrete states and those states which make all their own Medicaid eligibility determinations are known as 209 (b), or SSI alert, states. States using SSI standards, but making their own State Buy-in determinations, are shown as alert*. All states, except Kentucky (180), include Part A of Title IV, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (formerly Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) in their State Buy-in coverage groups. The following chart shows the SSI status of each state:
