SUBJECT: INDIVIDUALS ACTIVELY RECEIVING SSI/SSDI CAN RECEIVE MO HEALTHNET FOR FAMILIES
MANUAL REVISION #33
FORMS MANUAL # 11
The purpose of this memorandum is to advise that participants who are actively receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) can receive MO HealthNet for Families (MHF) per guidance from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
The Family MO HealthNet (MAGI) policy manual section 1810.020.00 Eligibility Requirements has been updated to reflect this change.
For participants currently receiving MHF and SSI or SSDI: send the SSI/SSDI Transition Letter at annual review. This letter will advise the participant they may be eligible for MO HealthNet for Aged, Blind, and Disabled (MHABD). If the participant chooses not to complete the MHABD application and all other eligibility factors are met, continue MHF coverage.
- Start sending participants receiving MHF and SSI or SSDI the SSI/SSDI Transition Letter at annual review.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
