The United States Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) produces the State Medicaid Manual. This manual contains day-to-day operating instructions, policies, and procedures based on statutes and regulations, guidelines, models, and directives. They are used by CMS program components, contractors, and State survey agencies to administer CMS programs. For many others, they are a good source of technical and professional information about the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Follow this link to the State Medicaid Manual website.
Several Medicaid qualifying programs base Medicaid eligibility on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) eligibility standards. Such programs follow Social Security Administration regulations governing Supplemental Security Income (SSI). These regulations appear in the Social Security Administration’s Program Operations Manual, which may be accessed at the Social Security Administration’s Program Operations Manual website.
