Medical information must be sent to MRT.Personnel@dss.mo.gov.  An MRT decision is always required for new applicants who:

  • Do not receive disability-based SSI or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) payments or Medicare based on conditions noted above, in a month for which coverage is requested, and
  • Are not otherwise ineligible based upon any factor other than disability.
  • NOTE: If an applicant is approved for SSDI/SSI during the application process, MRT must still determine medical eligibility for any months he/she is requesting coverage and did not receive a SSDI/SSI payment
