FORM UPDATE #19
This memorandum announces the removal of the Program of All Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) from programs designated as Qualified Income Trust (QIT) programs.
A participant may only use a QIT to reduce their income for:
- Home and Community Based Services (HCB) program for persons age 63 and over, and
- MO HealthNet for Children with Developmental Disabilities (MOCDD) for children under age 18.
