SUBJECT: REASONABLE COMPATIBILITY CLARIFICATION
MANUAL REVISION #28
The manual has been updated to clarify that when the self-attested income is above the MO HealthNet eligibility threshold and the Electronic Data Source (EOI) is below the threshold that a reasonable explanation must be provided or additional verification must be requested.
Income is still considered reasonable compatibility when:
- Both the self-attested income and the EOI fall within the same MO HealthNet program eligibility threshold or
- The self-attested income is below the MO HealthNet program eligibility threshold and EOI falls in a different MHN program category above the threshold, but the EOI is within 10% or less of the self-attested income.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
