SUBJECT: INTRODUCTION OF FAMILY MO HEALTHNET (MAGI) APPENDIX H ME CODES CHART AND NEWBORN CLARIFICATION
MANUAL REVISION #56
MANUAL ADDITION #
The purpose of this memorandum is to introduce Appendix H ME Codes Chart in the Family MO HealthNet (MAGI) manual. This appendix is a comprehensive list of MO HealthNet Eligibility (ME) codes, hierarchy levels, and funding sources, such as Title XIX(19).
The appendix can be used to help determine if a pregnant woman was receiving (or is retroactively eligible for) a qualifying Title XIX coverage on the child’s date of birth, thus making the child automatically eligible for newborn coverage.
This memo also introduces updates to MAGI manual section 1860.010.00 Eligibility to refer staff to the new Appendix H ME Codes Chart and reintroduces 1860.010.20 Eligibility Dates in the Newborn section of the manual.
- Begin utilizing Appendix H
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
