(01/01/08 – 03/31/08)
Encourage participants to keep their QUEST cards when their CA, NA, or ST case is closed. The same card can be used when the participant becomes eligible for benefits at a later date unless the card was reported as lost, stolen, or damaged.
 
WARNING
Do not accept QUEST cards from participants.
 
When a participant no longer wants to keep the QUEST card, advise them that the participant must destroy the QUEST card.
 
When a card is received by mail or is left in the office for ANY reason, the designated staff responsible for QUEST card maintenance must complete all of the following:
 
Contact a supervisor.
Destroy the card, witnessed by a supervisor, by cutting the card in half.
Document the case file regarding the return of the card, the QUEST card number, the destruction, and the witnessing supervisor’s name.
Change the Status Code in the EBT CARD STATUS field on EBCM to 09 (canceled).
Place the destroyed card in a confidential shred bin or box.
 
WARNING
Failure to follow these procedures may lead to disciplinary action.
