Applying for MO HealthNet (Medicaid)
Disabled Application Flow Chart
Please review this flow chart if you will be assisting a DMH consumer with the application process.
DMH Coversheet for MO HealthNet
Fill this out as completely as possible - fill in all blanks, check all applicable boxes. In order for the application to be processed as quickly as possible it is important to include medical records with the application or within two weeks. Most useful in establishing disability is the most recent psychosocial evaluation signed or cosigned by a psychiatrist or licensed clinical psychologist, and if this is not available the IM-60A (linked on the DMH RUSH coversheet) signed by a psychologist or licensed clinical psychiatrist who has seen the client in the past year.
