EXAMPLE: Staff sends a written request with applicant A on June 28, 20xx . Information is expected to be returned by July 08, 20xx . If the information is not received a second written request would be sent on July 09, 20xx, giving the applicant until July 19, 20xx to provide the information.
The automated eligibility system will send a notice of rejection for any applicant found ineligible. This includes situations where some assistance members (for whom assistance was requested) are found ineligible while others are found eligible. It also includes situations where application is made for both MO HealthNet and a cash grant and an applicant is found eligible for MO HealthNet , but ineligible for the cash grant.
