Oh this is a bag of worms! Since the last time you filed this form, has this persons living situation changed? You say she was once married and is now divorced and is disabled, but has she now moved in with another family member? Anytime anything changes for the Medi Cal/Medicaid recipient then you are suppose to call and notify them immediately. This is because she may no longer be eligible if she is in a better living situation.

Either find out who her social worker is and call them and ask for help, or go ahead and fill it out and on the bottom there is a section to add more information make a notation that she is now divorced and disabled and living with your Mom. Believe me they will follow up with you!!!! They will probably send you a notice stating that her Medicaid is pending additional information.

YOU NEED TO MAKE A COPY OF THE FORM AND KEEP IT IN A FILE ALONG WITH ALL PAPERWORK FROM THEM. WHEN YOU FILL IT OUT NEXT YEAR ALSO MAKE A COPY AND KEEP IT, YOU NEED TO HOLD ON TO COPIES OF ALL OF THESE SO YOU CAN LOOK BACK AND SEE WHAT YOU ANSWERED THE YEAR BEFORE.

Attach proof of disability, usually a letter of determination from SSI. Also attach copy of the divorce, this is crucial. If she pays your mother rent/ utilities, show it. Ask her MD to give you a letter stating her current condition and percent disability.

There must be space on the forms for comments where you could explain the situation.
I would contact your local Sr. center for help.
Is their a contact name or no. on the forms that you can call & ask for help to complete the forms ?
I have annual forms to fill out for my disabled family member & they do ask a lot of info that I cannot answer to. I have called the Social worker where the forms came from & they were helpful.
Some of the questions she told me to write in N/A ( non applicable ) .
Good luck, the forms are tough !
