IV-A, Title IV-E foster care, non-TANF
SoonerCare (Medicaid), and child care subsidy referrals.
(1) Oklahoma Department of Human Services Child Support Services (CSS) automatically initiates child support cases without additional application for certified Title IV-A, Title IV-E foster care, non-Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) SoonerCare (Medicaid), and child care subsidy
(2) A referral from the assistance programs listed in (1) of this subsection, means receipt of data that includes verified information with no errors or duplications, sufficient and appropriate for CSS to initiate a child support case;
(3) Custodial persons (CP)s who apply for non-TANF
SoonerCare (Medicaid) for themselves and their child(ren) must assign medical support rights to the state per
Section 1396k of Title 42 of the United States Code (42 U.S.C. § 1396k). •
CPs must cooperate in establishing paternity and obtaining medical support unless an exception exists per 42 U.S.C. §§ 1396a(l)(1)(A),
(B) CSS must open a Title IV-D medical enforcement only case,
per Oklahoma Administrative Code (OAC)
CSS may open a full-service case to provide all appropriate Title IV-D services, per
at the CP's request. • 3
(4) When CSS receives a referral from the Adult and Family Services worker per
OAC 340:40-7-9, CSS must open a full-service case when any of the applicant's children in the household are certified for
child care subsidy. • 8
(5) When CSS receives a non-TANF SoonerCare (Medicaid) referral from OHCA in which assigned court-ordered or cash medical support child support is owed,
must open a full-service case per OAC
who apply for non-TANF SoonerCare (Medicaid) on behalf of their child(ren) only are not required to cooperate in establishing paternity and obtaining medical support.
Therefore, except when (4) of this subsection applies, CSS does not provide child support services unless the CP made a request for a full-service case or the case is for medical
enforcement only. • 7
Termination of Title IV-A, Title IV-E foster care, and non-TANF SoonerCare (Medicaid) benefits.
When a family is no longer eligible for assistance under Titles IV-A, Title IV-E foster care, or SoonerCare (Medicaid) programs, all appropriate Title IV-D services continue without application per
Section 302.33 of Title 45 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
Non-TANF SoonerCare (Medicaid) cases previously limited to medical support continue as full-service cases.
When a CP refuses continued Title IV-D services and subsequently requests services, the CP must submit a completed and signed Form 03EN001E, Application for Child Support Services, even when CSS has an active case because of unreimbursed assistance owed to the
Referrals from other jurisdictions.
CSS accepts cases referred:
(1) by any state or tribal Title IV-D agency and from other countries when the noncustodial parent (NCP) resides in Oklahoma.
CSS does not require an application for cases referred from another Title IV-D agency;
(2) by interstate referrals for judgment only collections when the case was opened in the initiating state during the minority of any child on the case; or
(3) when Oklahoma is an appropriate jurisdiction to establish, enforce, modify, or determine the controlling order per the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act in
Sections 601-101 through 601-901 of Title 43 of the Oklahoma Statutes, whether or not the NCP resides in Oklahoma.
Responses from NCPs who sign an acknowledgment of paternity form.
CSS opens full-service cases for NCPs who filed Form 03PA209E, Acknowledgment of Paternity, with the Oklahoma State Department of Health, Division of Vital Records and requested child support services by completing and signing Form 03EN001E, Application for Child Support Services.
Other Title IV-D cases.
Except as provided in subsections (a), (c), and (d) of this Section, an applicant must submit a completed and signed Form 03EN001E to receive all appropriate child support services or locate only services.
Building case balances.
CSS builds case balances on new and reopened cases per
CSS opens a case and has information the NCP made payments in excess of the court-ordered child support order,
CSS only collects the excess payment when a court has determined the amount of the excess payment and ordered that it be satisfied by offset against the monthly current child support
When the NCP submits an application for child support services in a case previously closed for good cause for noncooperation, CSS:
(1) reviews the case to determine if:
(A) good cause still exists for the CP not to cooperate with CSS; and
(B) CSS can proceed without the CP's cooperation or participation;
(2) opens the case when good cause no longer exists;
(3) opens the case when good cause exists, but CSS can proceed without the CP's cooperation or participation; or
(4) closes the case when good cause still exists and CSS cannot proceed without the CP's cooperation or participation.
