Any participant who is receiving a cash nursing home payment except individuals in Department of Mental Health (DMH) contracted placements will be eligible for a monthly Personal Expense Allowance. The personal expense allowance will be issued as a separate payment.
NOTE: The DMH pays their participants a personal payment to meet their personal needs.
Senate Bill 418 (2007) modified RSMo § 208.030 to require any person eligible to receive a monthly Supplemental Nursing Care (SNC) personal expense allowance payment to receive a payment equal to the MO HealthNet vendor nursing personal needs allowance (PNA).
