SUBJECT: REAL PROPERTY AS AN AVAILABLE RESOURCE FOR MO HEALTHNET FOR THE AGED, BLIND OR DISABLED PROGRAMS
- MANUAL REVISION #57
Clarification regarding the treatment of real property as a resource for MHABD programs has been added to the December 1973 Eligibility Requirements manual.
Section 1030.010.10 Real Property as Available Resource has been updated to define the different types of real property not used as the participant’s primary residence and how those properties are counted for MHABD programs:
- Real property used in a participant’s business or trade
- Non-business, income producing, real property
- Non-business, real property used to produce goods or services for the sole benefit of the participant and that are essential to the participant’s self-support
These updates reflect the changes implemented on July 1, 2017 by 13 CSR 40-2.030.
- Review this memorandum and updated manual section with appropriate staff.
