[Issued 1-05-95]
The county Department of Human Services office where the mother resides must be notified in writing within five days of the child's birth in order for an individual person code to be assigned to the newborn. A claim may then be filed for nursery charges for the baby under the case number and the baby's name and assigned person code. Nursery charges billed on the mother's person code will be denied. Providers must use Form FSS-NB-1 to notify the county DHS office of the child's birth. Copies of the form may be obtained at the county DHS office.
