SUBJECT: MO HEALTHNET FOR THE AGED, BLIND, AND DISABLED (MHABD) MEDICAL REVIEW POLICY CHANGE
MANUAL REVISION #51
This memorandum introduces revisions to the Disability Section of the December 1973 Eligibility Requirements Manual. The Disability section defines Permanent and Total Disability (PTD), and provides instruction to staff on the Medical Review Team (MRT) role in the eligibility process.
Sections 1060.005.00 Verification of Disability , 1060.005.15 Submitting Information on Cases Previously Reviewed by MRT, and 1060.005.25 Disability Re-determinations have been revised to add a new process for staff when MHABD closes for reasons other than the MRT decision, and the participant reapplies or the case is reopened within 90 days from the closing action date.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
