Orange County – Better Screening
Submitted by: Jim Hazard
Since we implemented CalWIN there has been a significant increase in the number of 250% Working Disabled cases and TMC cases. CalWIN automatically looks at eligibility for these program whenever EDBC is run and there are indicators in the case that suggest the client could be eligible to one of these program. Too often this got by the workers and the client would be given a share of cost when they were eligible under TMC or the 250% Working Disabled Program. To some degree it even increased the number of A&D FPL cases though not as much as the other two programs. Workers did a better job of screening for A&D cases but even so some were missed. If information is correctly entered in CalWIN the screening process for these programs is automatic.
