Summary:

  • Form 1229A, Nursing Home/Supportive Living Facility Redetermination Report Form, is revised to include new sections entitled "Income Diversion" and "Voters Registration Information." 
  • The customer's failure to complete the income diversion section will not affect their eligibility for medical assistance.
  • Annual redeterminations for Nursing Home (NH) and Supportive Living Facility (SLF) customers with a spouse or dependent family members in the community are generally due in the month of March.
  • Maximus, an external vendor and part of the Illinois Medicaid Redetermination Project (IMRP), mails Form  1229A to all NH and SLF customers.
