Item 80 code 331 HCBC identifies each case that contains a waiver child. The code contains the month and year the waiver was approved.

New Manual MaterialCO 238 enters code 331 on a TANF case when the family has a waiver child in the home. The code stops the counter for everyone on the case (except it doesn't stop a counter over 60). When Item 80 code 331 HCBC is centrally entered, the Item 73 code is also changed to 4 (caring for a waiver child) for the first adult in the case.
