Federal Medicaid regulation 42 CFR 435.121 sets forth the requirements for “Individuals in States using more restrictive requirements for Medicaid than the SSI requirements”. RSMo 208.151 sets forth the legal basis for MO HealthNet coverage.

The beginning date of the claimant’s MO HealthNet coverage depends on whether they are eligible on a non-spend down or spend down basis.
