Reporting Instructions: DCF CORe W2 2013 Code 2215
Report any transportation related costs for W-2 eligible parents obtaining W-2
services under the following CORe
- 2109- TANF Eligibility Determination
- EA Eligibility Determination
- W-2 Work Activities
- W-2 Education
- W-2 Job Skills training
- W-2 Retention and Advancement
- W-2 Formal Assessments
- W-2 Supplemental Security Income (SSI)/Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) Advocacy
- W-2 EA Case Management/Other Services
This includes the value of W-2 transportation services such as transportation allowances, bus tokens, gasoline cards, van services, etc. provided to W-2 parents. In more remote areas, if a W-2 agency cannot obtain any form of public transportation service and elects to operate a van shuttle service for short term assistance of W-2 eligible parents in complying with required W-2 work activities, the agency will use a uniform mileage rate not to exceed the current State allowed mileage rate or a uniform flat rate charge per W-2 person, both of which consider all vehicle use and maintenance costs. No separate reimbursement for vehicle purchase, damage, insurance, maintenance, etc. is allowed in this CORe Code. Mileage rate charges should be applied per trip mileage versus per person when multiple W-2 eligible parents ride together in the same trip. Also, mileage rate charges should be allocated proportionally for W-2 and non-W-2 users if the vehicle transports both W-2 eligible parents and non W-2 users in the same trip.
W-2 agencies should use the Medicaid Transportation Broker for transportation of W-2 eligible parents to medical appointments whenever possible.
