    • C.

      Annual Reassessment

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Face to Face
    C. Annual Reassessment
    D. Event Based Visit
    Explanation
    Income and medical expenses are reviewed during face-to-face meetings, annual reassessments, and event-based visits. These reviews are conducted to assess the individual's financial situation and medical needs accurately. Face-to-face meetings allow for direct interaction and verification of income and expenses. Annual reassessments ensure that any changes in income or medical expenses are accounted for. Event-based visits are scheduled when there are significant changes in the individual's circumstances. By reviewing income and medical expenses through these various methods, a comprehensive evaluation can be made to determine the individual's eligibility for certain benefits or assistance programs.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    If family members who live with client pay rent to the client every month, then it should be counted as income (there is no lease).

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    If family members who live with the client pay rent to the client every month, it should not be counted as income because there is no lease agreement. Without a formal lease agreement, the payments made by family members can be seen as voluntary contributions or assistance rather than rental income. Therefore, it is not appropriate to consider it as income.

  • 3. 

    Two sisters live together and are both enrolled in ESP.  They deposit their social security checks into a shared checking account.  The income should be counted separately and an attestation should be completed on each sister individually. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the correct answer is that since the two sisters live together and are both enrolled in ESP, their income should be counted separately. This means that each sister's social security check should be considered as their individual income. Additionally, an attestation should be completed on each sister individually, further emphasizing the need to treat their income separately. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct.

  • 4. 

    The client reports he purchased a stair lift last year but does not have a receipt.  Without the stair lift expense client will have a 40% copay.  It is acceptable to use this medical expense on the attestation.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The client cannot use the stair lift expense on the attestation because he does not have a receipt. Without the receipt, there is no proof of the purchase and therefore it cannot be considered a valid medical expense.

      3

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer

    • E.

      A and D

    Correct Answer
    E. A and D
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A and D. This is because when a client signs a waiver of income review, the procedure for entering their income in Q is to enter "9999" in the "other" box on the attestation and document that the client verbally agreed to 100% copay. No information is entered on the detail screen, and the complete amount is not entered in the appropriate category on the attestation as the client's income is waived.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The type of income medical expenses reviewed and their sources
    B. Verbal agreement to copay
    C. Client signed attestation
    Explanation
    The income case note should include the type of income, medical expenses reviewed, and their sources. It should also mention the verbal agreement to copay and the client's signed attestation. All of this information is necessary to accurately document the client's income and expenses for the income case.

    It is acceptable to start services for a client who has just been discharged from the hospital and is in urgent need of services but has not had a chance to get the financial information together.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not acceptable to start services for a client who has just been discharged from the hospital and is in urgent need of services but has not had a chance to get the financial information together. Financial information is a crucial aspect in determining eligibility for services and ensuring proper billing and payment arrangements. Starting services without this information may lead to complications and difficulties in obtaining payment for the services provided.

    It is okay to skip the medical expense review if the client is on Medicaid?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The answer is true because Medicaid is a government program that provides healthcare coverage for low-income individuals and families. If a client is on Medicaid, their medical expenses are typically covered by the program. Therefore, it may not be necessary to review their medical expenses separately as they are already being taken care of by Medicaid.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because even though the couple live together and share the mortgage, they are divorced. Divorce legally ends the marriage, and therefore they are no longer considered a couple.
