Mandatory Verifications

Mandatory verifications must be verified through an available electronic data source or by paper proof, if electronic data sources are unsuccessful or unavailable. Self-attestation alone is not acceptable for eligibility requirements with mandatory verifications. Medical Assistance for Employed Persons with Disabilities (MA-EPD) has the following mandatory verifications.

  • Assets
    • Verification of assets is required at application and when a new asset is reported. If an asset is determined to be excluded it does not need to be verified again at renewal.
    • Verification of the following assets are not required at application or renewal:
      • Homestead, if it qualifies for the real property homestead exclusion. Refer to Section MA-ABD Homestead Real Property for more information.
      • Vehicle, if only one is reported. Refer to Section MA-ABD Automobiles and Other Vehicles Used for Transportation for more information.
      • Household goods and personal effects
  • Certification of Disability through Social Security Administration (SSA) or State Medical Review Team (SMRT)
  • Income from employment
  • Immigration status
  • Social Security Number
  • Social Security and Medicare taxes paid
  • U.S. Citizenship

American Indian and Alaska Native enrollees need to provide proof of status to be exempt from paying MA-EPD premiums.
