MEDATS (generally called “MDL”) is a system within IMS used by OHCA’s Level of Care Evaluation Unit (LOCEU) to communicate with OKDHS workers. The system is for: disability decisions, DDS home based waivers, ICF-IID (Intermediate Care Facility – Individual with an Intellectual Disability) medical eligibility, transfer from an ICF-IID to and emergency services for ineligible/illegal aliens.
To access the MEDATS MDL screen:
- Log into IMS
- Clear the screen
- Type MDL case number and press ‘enter’.
Received Date: date LOCEU received a complete application. A complete application is when LOCEU receives fully completed paperwork, such as a Medical Social Summary or email requesting alien emergency medical. If the document/email is incomplete, it is not considered an application. Make sure the documents are fully signed and dated before sending them to LOCEU.
Refer to the following articles:
- Aged, Blind, Disabled (ABD): How to Get Approval for Alien Emergency Services.
