SUBJECT: REASONABLE OPPORTUNITY, CITIZENSHIP, AND IMMIGRANT STATUS POLICY CONSOLIDATED FOR MO HEALTHNET (MHN) PROGRAMS
Based on feedback recommendations, the 1973 Eligibility Requirements Manual has been updated to provide links to the Family MO HealthNet (MAGI) Manual sections regarding Reasonable Opportunity, Citizenship, and Immigration Status requirements that are the same for both programs. Links can be found in the renamed manual section, 1010.000.00 Reasonable Opportunity, Citizenship, and Immigrant Status (OAA, PTD, and AB).
Policy found in sections 1010.005.00 Documents to Verify Citizenship and 1010.010.00 Citizens of the Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of Palau, and Republic of Marshall Islands has been moved to 1010.000.00 Reasonable Opportunity, Citizenship, and Immigrant Status (OAA, PTD, and AB) and linked to the MAGI Manual; therefore, these section numbers are now obsolete.
The following Verification Requirements sections in the General Information manual are obsolete as the policy contained in these sections has also been moved to 1010.000.00 Reasonable Opportunity, Citizenship, and Immigrant Status (OAA, PTD, and AB) and linked to the MAGI Manual:
- 0110.020.00 Citizenship/Alien Status
- 0110.020.01 Documents to Verify Citizenship
- 0110.020.02 Reasonable Opportunity to Verify Citizenship
- 0110.020.03 Reapplication after Benefits are Discontinued for Failure to Provide Documentation of Citizenship
- 0110.020.05 Alien Status
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
