In IES, use Maintain Application/Search Application to search for and select the DCFS case to update. Case changes may include changes or corrections to the following information:
Some changes require a new effective date. Enter the effective date of change in the Eligibility Begin Date field on the DCFS Eligibility Details screen in IES. IES edits will not permit a future date. Do not enter a date in the End Eligibility Date field. Refer to the table in WAG 06-27-01-c to determine if the Effective Begin Date is required.
An eligibility review for Medicaid is required once every 12 months. The REDE is not reported in IES. Children determined eligible under Title IV-E are deemed Medicaid eligible.
