IFR Using V231 Between KGPI and KMSO

V231 between Kallispell VOR (FCA) and Missoula VOR (MSO) gives a MEA of 13,000 and a MOCA of 8700. However, ForeFlight shows several previously assigned routes along this airway using altitudes as low as 7000. My flight instructor said this may be due to “local ATC knowledge” and use of vectors to final. Is that true? If so, how would this be handled in PilotEdge?…Can I file an IFR flight plan below the MOCA?
