0950.090.00 BEGINNING ELIGIBILITY DATE – PRIOR QUARTER COVERAGE

A presumptive eligibility period has no effect on the beginning eligibility date of regular MO HealthNet coverage. Presumptive Eligibility does not have prior quarter eligibility. Explore prior quarter coverage under MO HealthNet for Kids, Pregnant Women and Parents, in the same manner as for any MO HealthNet application. Presumptively eligible children who are subsequently approved for MO HealthNet for Kids, Pregnant Women and Parents will have the beginning date of eligibility based on MO HealthNet for Kids (MHK) and MO HealthNet for Families (MHF) rules. In many cases, the MHK/MHF eligibility begin dates will be prior to the begin date of the presumptive eligibility period.
