The Department for Medicaid Services is aware of issues with the new benefind system, which processes all benefit programs administered by the Department for Community Based Services. It has resulted in discontinuation letters being sent in error or the system incorrectly showing an individual as ineligible. The Cabinet for Health and Family Services is taking action to ensure that no individual loses benefits as a result. If a person was eligible for Medicaid benefits in March, the person will automatically be eligible for benefits in April.
The Cabinet and DCBS are working with its technology partner, Deloitte, on system issues to stop the incorrect notices and properly reflect eligibility. Medicaid requests that providers continue to provide necessary services and prescriptions to members during this time.
