SUBJECT: UPDATE TO REASONABLE COMPATIBILITY POLICY IN THE FAMILY MO HEALTHNET (MAGI) MANUAL
MANUAL REVISION #
Effective immediately, when a participant attests to income above applicable program thresholds, the participant is ineligible. Participants determined to be ineligible are systematically referred to the Federally Facilitated Marketplace (FFM) to explore coverage.
MAGI Manual section 1805.030.15 Reasonable Compatibility is revised to add definitions of eligibility levels and program thresholds and to explain the distinction between the two.
For the duration of the Public Health Emergency (PHE), follow verification guidance in MEDES Resources.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
