Economic Impact Payments and OLTL Participants

How Do Economic Impact Payments Affect Office of Long-Term Living (OLTL) Participants?

 The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is in the process of distributing economic impact payments (or recovery rebates) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. OLTL has received questions about how these payments will affect the Medical Assistance (MA) eligibility of OLTL participants in Community HealthChoices, the Living Independence for the Elderly (LIFE) program, OBRA waiver, and Act 150 program. These questions are answered on the attached document.
