SUBJECT: PRIOR QUARTER (PQ) UPDATES TO THE FAMILY MO HEALTHNET (MAGI) AND MO HEALTHNET FOR THE AGED, BLIND, AND DISABLED (MHABD) PROGRAM MANUALS
MANUAL REVISION #
Updated policy information regarding PQ requests have been made to the MAGI and MHABD program manuals. Individuals may apply or reapply for PQ for up to one year after the application date. They may apply for PQ in person, by telephone, or in writing.
The PQ months must be the three consecutive months prior to the date of application.
EXAMPLE: Ms. B applied and was approved for MHABD in May 2021. In August 2021, Ms. B contacted FSD stating she had outstanding medical bills from March 2021. Ms. B can apply for PQ because it has not been over a year since she submitted her initial application for MHABD.
Note: Adult Expansion Group (AEG) PQ coverage shall not start prior to the implementation month of July 2021.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
