SUBJECT: CROWDFUNDING FOR MO HEALTHNET FOR THE AGED, BLIND, AND DISABLED (MHABD) PROGRAM
MANUAL REVISION #
Crowdfunding policy has been added to the MO HealthNet (MHN) December 1973 Eligibility Requirements manual in the Cash and Securities Section. This addition to the manual provides guidance regarding how crowdfunding is counted for MHABD programs.
Once crowdfunding income has been verified, it is counted as income in the month received and as a resource in the following month and ongoing. If only a portion of the account is available to the participant in recurring lump sum payments, this will need to be evaluated to determine the frequency and duration of the income.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
