In the Eligibility subsystem, if question 8 on the Screener Generic screen is answered "yes", ask the applicant the questions on the following screens, HIPP Screens #1, #2, #3, and #4. Do this for all cases except:
(FCRC) If the benefit unit is enrolled, or can enroll, in a health insurance plan and someone has a high-cost medical condition, have the applicant sign both copies when the interview is completed. Place one copy in the
case file and forward the other copy to the Financial Recovery Coordinator (FRC) to send to Springfield. Do not wait for the application to be approved. Forward the form to the FRC even if the applicant cannot provide all the information.
NOTE: If the policyholder is not an applicant or client and chooses not to cooperate, the client's eligibility is not affected.
Before case approval or certification (PE cases):
NOTE: HFS 1442 is not required if the client is not enrolled in the health plan.
