In section 1634 States all recipients of mandatory SSP's and SSA-administered optional
SSP's are eligible for Medicaid coverage unless they refuse to assign their rights
to any third party medical payments or refuse to provide TPL information. (See SI 01730.040 and SI 01730.045 for a more complete explanation.)
In States where SSA makes Medicaid determinations on behalf of the State and the State
administers its own optional supplementation program, the State can elect to provide
Medicaid coverage for recipients of optional SSP's.
In States where SSA does not make Medicaid determinations for the State, the State
determines Medicaid eligibility for recipients of SSI and SSP's according to its Medicaid
plan and coverage provisions.
