SUBJECT: GATEWAY TO BETTER HEALTH TRANSITION LETTER AND UPDATED MO HEALTHNET (MHN) ELIGIBILITY REVIEW FORM (IM-1U)
Beginning 11/19/2021, many current Gateway to Better Health (GTBH) participants were mailed a Gateway to Better Health Transition Letter and an IM-1U. These letters and forms may be sent to participants multiple times, until the form is returned or the end of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency.
Participants should complete the form and return it to the Family Support Division (FSD) by the date listed on the review form. FSD will use the information to explore MHN Adult Expansion Group (AEG) for those participants.
If a participant wishes to contact FSD by phone, FSD may explore AEG eligibility by completing a phone application and returning a review form is not necessary. Participants can call FSD Contact Center at 855-373-9994 to complete a phone application.
NOTE: Some GTBH participants will NOT receive a review form or letter as they are already part of a Family MO HealthNet (MAGI) household and additional information is not needed to explore eligibility for AEG.
The IM-1U was updated to gather all of the information necessary to explore AEG and eligibility for other MHN programs.
When a form needs to be replaced, staff can print the IM-1U for the participant.
Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
