The family is required to notify HFS or DHS of a decrease in the amount the policyholder pays for the eligible children within 10 days of the decrease. If the family fails to do so, any excess Rebate payments made to the policyholder are considered overpayments.
If the family notifies HFS or DHS of an increase in the amount the policyholder pays for the eligible children, the change is made for the current processing month. If the family notifies HFS or DHS within 10 days of the increase, a supplement is issued for the current month if the increase is more than $10.
Do not change the Rebate payment until the family provides a new Rebate form.
