Effective September 1, 2019, DHS will implement its electronic asset verification program (AVS). The service will help identify unreported accounts when determining MA eligibility for people whose MA basis of eligibility is age 65 or older, blind or who have a disability (MA-ABD).
MA applicants and enrollees and their spouses and sponsors whose assets are counted in the MA eligibility determination will be required to authorize the agency to request information through the AVS. See Section III.Authorization to Obtain Financial Information from the Account Validation Service (AVS) (DHS-7823), for more information.
