SUBJECT: END OF CONTINUOUS ENROLLMENT CONDITION; TRANSITION PERIOD MANUAL SECTIONS ADDED TO MO HEALTHNET FOR THE AGED, BLIND, AND DISABLED [MHABD (NON-MAGI)] AND FAMILY MO HEALTHNET (MAGI) MANUALS
On December 29, 2022, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023 (CAA, 2023) was enacted. Under the CAA, 2023, expiration of the continuous enrollment condition is no longer linked to the end of the Public Health Emergency (PHE). The continuous enrollment condition ends on March 31, 2023.
Effective April 1, 2023, annual renewals will resume for all MO HealthNet (MHN) programs. Family Support Division (FSD) will attempt to complete an ex-parte (not requiring information from the individual) renewal for each participant prior to sending a paper renewal form. An annual renewal must be completed before a determination of ineligibility or lesser coverage can be made.
Participants that are found to no longer qualify for MHN will be referred to the Federally Facilitated Marketplace (FFM).
Participants who receive a paper renewal form can return it or other documents in the following ways:
- Uploading a document: Visit mydssupload.mo.gov to upload the document
- Fax: 573-526-9400
- Mail: Family Support Division
PO Box 2700
Jefferson City, MO 65102
- Visit your local Resource Center (check the map for office hours before visiting)
Review Renewing Your Medicaid Eligibility for additional information.
Future memorandums will be released regarding returned mail, electronic verification, MAGI and Non-MAGI annual renewal processes and annual renewal waivers.
The MHABD (Non-MAGI) and MAGI Manuals have been updated to add sections regarding the Transition Period. The Transition Period manual sections house links to related memos.
Note: Transition period refers to the conclusion of the Continuous Enrollment Condition and restart of annual renewals. Missouri’s transition period is from April 1, 2023 through May 31, 2024.
The following manual sections have been added:
- MHABD Manual section 0890.010.00 Transition Period
- MAGI Manual section 1895.010.00 Transition Period
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
