The first month the participant has the option to pay-in is the month of approval. The approval letter, FAMIS form FA-460 MO HealthNet Action Notice, will instruct the participant to submit bills to the eligibility specialist for MO HealthNet coverage for any months of prior quarter eligibility.  MHD will send all new participants separate invoices for the month of approval and the month following approval that gives the participant the option of paying-in or sending bills to the eligibility specialist for those months.
