Application policy for MHABD has been revised as MO HealthNet (MHN) uses a single streamlined application and most application policies apply to all MHN programs.
A new section was created in the MHABD Manual, 0804.000.00 – Application Processing that explains which application policies apply to all applications and provides links to existing policy in the Family MO HealthNet (MAGI) Manual. This policy section also provides links to new MHABD policy sections that provide information for MHABD specific policy.
New MHABD specific policies include:
0804.005.00 – MHABD Application Timeframes
0804.010.00 – Voluntary Withdrawal
0804.015.00 – Rejection before the End of the Timeframe
0804.020.00 – Canceling a Rejection
0804.025.00 – MO HealthNet Application Concurrent with MHABD Cash Programs
The MHABD Manual has been revised to obsolete 0835.000.00 Application Timeframes for MO HealthNet for the Aged, Blind, and Disabled Programs as this information is now available in 0804.005.00 Application Timeframes. Section 0835.010.00 Canceling a Rejection has been revised and renumber and is now located at 0804.020.00 Canceling a Rejection.
