GRH BASIS - DRUG/ALCOHOL ADDICTION

ISSUE DATE: 07/2017

MFIP, DWP, SNAP, MSA, GA:
No provisions.


GRH:

People have a basis of eligibility for GRH when drug or alcohol addiction is a material factor that limits the person’s ability to work and provide self-support.

Drug or alcohol addiction must be verified through 1 of the following:

A physician's certification that the client's disabling condition is the result of continued drug or alcohol addiction. Use the Request for Medical Opinion (DHS-2114) (PDF).

A qualified professional verifies that the client's disabling condition is the result of continued drug or alcohol addiction. Use the Group Residential Housing - Professional Statement of Need (DHS-7122) (PDF).


Follow the procedures in 0012.30 (Chemical Use Assessment) to determine if a client should be evaluated for chemical dependency.

After this basis has been verified, enter “Y” on "Verified Material DA&A" field on the MAXIS DISA panel. MAXIS will send a DAIL message to change the eligibility basis to "Disability Based on DA&A".

Review this basis of eligibility at each recertification.

See 0010.18.05 (Verifying Disability/Incapacity - Cash), 0028.18.03 (Suitable/Unsuitable Work).
