Rick got it right! Here's the official answer from AOPA:

"The reason why MORA is not in the FAR/AIM is because it is a
Jeppesen term. It does stand for minimum off route altitude. Since
our Real Time Flight Planner is a Jeppesen product they use MORA.
The MORA will guarantee you 1000 feet of obstacle clearance if below
6000 feet and 2000 feet of clearance above 7000 feet. I hope this
helps clarify the situation."

I guess you're on your own between 6000 and 7000 -
