FROM:
VALERIE J. DAVIS, ACTING DIRECTOR
SUBJECT:
UNINSURED WOMEN'S HEALTH SERVICES PARTICIPANT CODED DISABLED IN FAMIS

DISCUSSION:

Effective April 6, 2009, when an Uninsured Women’s Health Services (UWHS) applicant or participant is coded as disabled on the Disabled (FMMX) screen, FAMIS will automatically register a MO HealthNet for the Aged, Blind, and Disabled (MHABD) application in the Legacy system.

Reason codes that initiate an MHABD application from the UWHS program are:

CNE                 DISABILITY CLAIMED/NOT YET ESTABLISHED
PMR                 MRT - PENDING
SSD                 RECEIVES SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY
SSI                   RECEIVES SSI

Ineligibility for any other MO HealthNet program is an eligibility requirement for UWHS. Therefore, if a UWHS participant is claiming a disability, eligibility for MHABD must be explored. The participant can be approved for UWHS while exploring eligibility for MHABD. If the participant is found eligible for MHABD, close the UWHS case and approve for MHABD.

NECESSARY ACTION:
