Because MOCDD individuals are considered to be institutionalized, persons determined to have transferred property without fair and valuable consideration are subject to transfer of property penalties. Eligibility for MHABD using MOCDD waiver criteria cannot begin until the penalty period expires. Follow the policy in Income Maintenance Manual section 1040.000.00 TRANSFERS OF PROPERTY for evaluating transfers of property and determining the penalty period.
Individuals who have transferred property without fair and valuable consideration may still be eligible for MHABD. Use the MHDC criteria for establishing eligibility for MO HealthNet for persons subject to transfer of property penalty.
