New Aid Codes for Optional Targeted Low Income Children Program

November 5, 2013

Effective for dates of service on or after January 1, 2014, new aid codes T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, T8, T9 and T0 will be used in the implementation of the Optional Targeted Low Income Children (OTLIC) Program.

Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), states may elect to implement optional coverage for certain categorically-needy population groups as a part of health care reform. California has elected to implement the OTLIC Program. Title XXI federal funding is available.

For children enrolled in the OTLIC Program, Medi-Cal provides full-scope or restricted benefits dependent upon income eligibility as well as citizenship and immigration status.

Manual replacement pages reflecting these changes will be released in a future Medi-Cal Update.
