Verification Requirements Manual (for MO HealthNet & Adult Cash Assistance Programs)

0110.025.00 Income

In determining need, it is necessary to arrive at the most accurate projection possible of the assistance group’s gross monthly income. Client’s statements must be independently verified, using the best information available. Verification and case recording must support, to the greatest extent possible, that all sources of income have been identified, and that the budgeted amounts are accurate.

Note: Although application interviews are not required for Medicaid/MC+ cases, it may be necessary to contact the client to clarify information obtained from the verification provided.
