SUBJECT: UPDATES TO CLARIFY AND PROVIDE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR INCOME EXCLUSIONS IN THE MO HEALTHNET FOR THE AGED, BLIND, AND DISABLED (MHABD) MANUAL
MANUAL REVISION #
Updates have been made to the manual section, 0805.015.10 Income Exclusions in the MO HealthNet for the Aged, Blind, and Disabled (MHABD) Manual.
Sheltered Workshop income must be excluded for participants who are eligible for certified extended employment. However, it can be difficult to determine if an employer is a sheltered workshop. Sheltered workshops are supported by the Department of Elementary & Secondary Education. Staff should review the directory of Sheltered Workshops to become familiar with the names and locations. They can be found at https://dese.mo.gov/special-education/sheltered-workshops/directories. This link has been added to Income Exclusions in the manual.
Updates were also made to provide links to relevant manual sections in the 1973
Eligibility Requirements manual. These links replaced links previously used that directed staff to other Income Maintenance manuals.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
