FROM: KIM EVANS, DIRECTOR
SUBJECT: INTRODUCING SYSTEM-GENERATED AGED, BLIND, AND DISABLED SUPPLEMENT FORM FOR NON-MAGI APPLICATIONS
The Aged, Blind, and Disabled Supplement (FAABD) is a new system-generated version of the Aged, Blind, and Disabled Supplement (IM-1ABDS).
Effective August 12, 2023, FAMIS will allow Family Support Division (FSD) staff to send an FAABD to any participant that has indicated that they are over the age of 65, blind, or disabled. If the supplement information is not provided, then the application will systematically reject for “failure to provide supplemental information” and a notice will be sent to the participant.
FSD staff cannot complete a Non-MAGI eligibility decision with only information provided on the MO HealthNet online application, or the Application for Health Coverage & Help Paying Costs (IM-1SSL). The FAABD and IM-1ABDS are used to collect the additional information required to determine eligibility for Non-MAGI programs such as:
- MO HealthNet for Aged, Blind, and Disabled
- Blind Pension
- Supplemental Aid to the Blind
- Supplemental Nursing Care
Note: If FSD is able to collect the required information by calling the participant or during a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) interview, a call to the FSD Information Center at 855-373-4636, or during any phone or in person interaction with FSD staff and certain contracted vendors, then a supplement form is not required for Non-MAGI applications.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
- Staff must review revised FAMIS Resources training materials regarding registering applications.
