    • The individual or the individual's authorized representative completes and signs the form. If necessary, the advisor helps complete the form.

Detailed Instructions

How to Prepare

  1. If the current eligibility factors for Medicaid, including income, are exactly the same as those during the prior period and current eligibility is documented, the advisor documents this in the Case Comments.
  2. If any factor of eligibility is different and precludes eligibility for the prior period, the worker documents the reason for ineligibility.


  • For Children's Medicaid do not
    • request more income verification for prior Medicaid coverage than what is required for ongoing eligibility (that is, at least once paycheck stub for each working family member for each prior month).
    • require Form H1113 if the family provides enough information to determine eligibility for prior months.
  • For Medicaid for Breast and Cervical Cancer (MBCC), do not require Form H1113 or verification of unpaid medical bills when processing a request for prior months.

For Agency Use Only — The advisor records the month(s) involved in the prior Medicaid application.

Items 1-4 — All questions are self-explanatory. Verification of unpaid bills is required. The worker must verify income for each month in which there are unpaid medical bills.
