02520 Child Support Services - There is no requirement to refer a child eligible for CHIP to CSS or that the family cooperate in establishing paternity and support on behalf of the child. A family can voluntarily pursue paternity and support for any CHIP child where there are no Medicaid eligible siblings and should be directed to the local CSS staff if such a request is made. In these instances, a system generated referral shall not be used. There is no penalty for failing to cooperate with CSS on a voluntary referral.
