PM 04-02-01: Assist or Moms and Babies Case

WAG 04-02-01.

Although some persons in the family are considered to be receiving FamilyCare Assist, some Moms and Babies, and some All Kids Assist, they can all be included in one case.

The case can include no more than 2 of the following adults:

  • the caretaker relative;
  • the parent of an eligible child in the case;
  • the spouse of the caretaker relative.

If the child(ren) has 2 parents in the home, no other adults are eligible for medical benefits based on the child(ren)'s eligibility.

A child placed in temporary foster care can remain in the unit while the mother makes a final decision on adoption. A child whose mother has signed a voluntary placement agreement with DCFS cannot remain in the mother's case.
