0735.010.00 Eligibility for Buy-In (SMI Premium) for Medicare

SP-Only, SSI-SP, and SSI-Only recipients are eligible for Buy-In. The State of Missouri pays the costs of the Supplementary Medical Insurance (SMI) Premium if the claimant is eligible for and participating in Part B of Medicare.

NOTE: Enter the correct OASDI claim number in the IMU5 system, when applicable, as this number is required to “buy-in” the recipient.
