SUBJECT: OBSOLETE MO HEALTHNET GATEWAY TO BETTER HEALTH APPLICATION (IM-1MAGW)
MANUAL REVISION #
Effective October 1, 2021, the IM-1MAGW is obsolete and cannot be accepted as a valid MO HealthNet application. Gateway to Better Health (GTBH) applicants must apply using the Application for Health Coverage & Help Paying Costs (IM-1SSL).
All applicants will have a Family MO HealthNet (MAGI) and Adult Expansion Group (AEG) eligibility determination completed and screened for MO HealthNet for Aged, Blind, and Disabled (MHABD) before exploring GTBH benefits. The Gateway to Better Health manual section, 1600.000.00 Gateway To Better Health, now references the IM-1SSL as the appropriate application for GTBH applicants.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
- Staff should immediately discard any IM-1MAGW applications and begin using the IM-1SSL for all MO HealthNet applicants.
