A request may be submitted later than 10 days after the date of the notice of transfer penalty, (for example, when there is a change in circumstances), but if approved, the effective date of the waiver will not be earlier than the date the FSD receives the completed MO HealthNet Undue Hardship Waiver Request form.
Example: Alice receives a notice dated February 10 that her January 20 application for HCB is being denied and that she will have a 350-day penalty period beginning January 20. In June, Alice’s health deteriorates and her monthly income decreases by 60%. Alice submits an undue hardship request to FSD, which is received on June 25. The undue hardship request is approved by MHN Program and Policy. Alice’s remaining penalty period is waived and she’s subsequently certified for HCB beginning June 25.
