SUBJECT: MO HEALTHNET FOR THE AGED, BLIND, AND DISABLED FOR PATIENTS IN PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS
MANUAL REVISION #115
In the past individuals were ineligible for MO HealthNet for the Aged, Blind, and Disabled because they were residing in a private institution and receiving care:
- Due to membership in the group operating the institution;
- Making a lump sum payment or transfer of property or other resources in exchange for lifetime care; or
- The institution meeting the essential needs of the participant.
Missouri 13 CSR 40-2.080 has been amended. Individuals are no longer ineligible for these reasons. The manual has been updated to remove these restrictions.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
