SUBJECT: INTRODUCING MO HEALTHNET (MHN) INFORMATIONAL NOTICE (IM-34 AEG) FOR USE WITH MHN APPLICATION PROCESSING
FORM REVISION #
The MHN Informational Notice (IM-34 AEG) is a new form Family Support Division (FSD) will send to applicants who may potentially be eligible for MHN Adult Expansion Group (AEG). The IM-34 AEG advises participants that they were rejected for MO HealthNet for Families, but they will still be evaluated for AEG when FSD begins processing AEG applications.
When a determination will reject an adult applicant, but must be authorized to approve benefits for a pregnant individual or a child (age 0-18 years old), staff must fill out this form, send a copy to the participant, and a copy to the electronic file.
EXAMPLE: Carla applies for MHN for herself and her husband, George. Carla reports that she is pregnant and there are no other children in the home. The eligibility system determines that Carla is eligible for MO HealthNet for Pregnant Women and George is ineligible as there is no eligible child in the home. However, George may be eligible for AEG.
- Approve MPW for Carla and reject MHF for George.
- Complete the IM-34 AEG, send to Carla, and save a copy in Carla’s electronic file.
- Add notes to Carla’s person page that the case was authorized to approve a pregnant individual and an IM-34 AEG was sent for George.
The IM-34 AEG was added to the IM Forms Manual for staff to access.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
