SUBJECT: MO HEALTHNET FOR THE AGED, BLIND, AND DISABLED (MHABD) RETIREMENT USER GUIDE CORRECTION
Income Maintenance Memo #87 announced a change to how retirement accounts are counted for MHABD resource determinations.
A user guide was mentioned in that memo. An error was discovered on the user guide. This has been corrected and the corrected version has been posted and is attached to this memo.
The user guide incorrectly stated that an account available only for hardship reasons was considered accessible. This has been updated to reflect current policy. An account that is available only due to a hardship, is NOT an available resource.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
