Mandatory Verifications

Each Minnesota Health Care Program (MHCP) has specific verification requirements. Refer to the specific program sections for detailed information about mandatory verifications.

Electronic verification sources are used first to verify the information provided by the applicant or enrollee. If electronic verification is unsuccessful or unavailable, paper proofs may be required to determine eligibility. In some circumstances, self-attestation is acceptable without further verification. Refer to specific eligibility requirements for information on what types of proofs may verify information and when self-attestation is acceptable.

In addition to mandatory verifications, proofs may be required when the information provided by the applicant or enrollee is inconsistent with information the county, tribal or state servicing agency has from other sources. See the MHCP Inconsistent Information policy for more information about situations when proofs may be required.
