PM 18-03-04: Children Born to AABD or Certain DCFS Clients

WAG 18-03-04.

When a child is born to a mother who:

  • receives AABD Cash or AABD Medical; or
  • receives an adoption assistance subsidy through DCFS; or
  • is in a subsidized guardianship program through DCFS,

start medical (back to the date of birth) by creating a Moms and Babies case for the child. The client must complete an application by the time the child reaches age one. If an application is not completed by age one, cancel the case when the child reaches age one unless they remain eligible due to continuous eligibility.
