The following Electronic Verification System (EVS) sources have additional requirements due to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
- Accurint for Government Eligibility
- The Work Number
The FCRA allows the Family Support Division (FSD) to consult electronic sources that are owned by a consumer reporting agency in order to determine eligibility for a government program.
Refer to manual section 0110.060.05 Electronic Verification System Legal Basis for a detailed description of the FCRA requirements.
Authorization to use EVS, including sources that have FCRA requirements, is received when a valid application is received.
FCRA authorization is a condition of eligibility for Non-MAGI MO HealthNet (MHN) applicants and participants. If FCRA authorization is revoked, the applicant or participant is not eligible for Non-MAGI coverage. FCRA authorization is not a condition of eligibility for any other FSD programs.
The authorization to review EVS data sources remains valid until:
- FSD rejects the application
- Benefits are terminated; or
- FSD receives a written and signed revocation
