Citation: 1 N.J.A.R. 47
Decision Date: 1980
Agency: DIVISION OF PUBLIC WELFARE
Synopsis: A local county welfare board denied petitioner's application for participation in the Medicaid Only program because it claimed that her monthly income was exactly equal to the appliable Medicaid eligibility income standard and that eligibility existed only when income level is less than the standard. The administrative law judge found that while state regulations were silent on the issue, 42 CFR 435.831 (b) provided that an individual is eligible for Medicaid when income is equal to or less than the applicable income standard. Accordingly, the administrative law judge concluded that petitioner's income level did not exclude her from the Medicaid Only program.
