Data Hub (SSA & CMS)
- January 19, 2017 - CMS released an FAQ document addressing questions related to the newly permissible use of SSA Hub data to determine SNAP/TANF eligibility in states operating integrated eligibility systems. The FAQs address common questions we received from interested states about next steps and available funding to engage in this process. If states have additional questions they should send them to ORDP.Data.Exchange@ssa.gov and/or HubData@cms.hhs.gov.
- December 22, 2016 - The Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) signed a historic agreement that will streamline data sharing with states and enable more integrated eligibility processes for Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) beneficiaries. Specifically, eligible state Medicaid agencies will be permitted and encouraged to use SSA data that they obtain via the CMS Federal Data Services Hub for determining eligibility for SNAP and TANF applicants when making Medicaid eligibility determinations. We are initiating this effort with Pennsylvania, Oregon, and Montana, who are executing agreements with SSA to authorize this use. For states interested in learning more about what makes a state eligible and funding availability, the primary point of contact at SSA is firstname.lastname@example.org and at CMS is Nicole.Comeaux1@cms.hhs.gov
