In this talk, we begin by giving a primer on the main physical mechanisms that give rise to polarization phenomena in this line. We then show the results of a series of numerical radiative transfer calculations, highlighting the sensitivity to MO effects both in its wing and frequency-integrated linear polarization signals. The theoretical results presented here further enhance the diagnostic interest of the unprecedented spectropolarimetric and broadband observations obtained by the Chromospheric Lyman-Alpha Spectropolarimeter (CLASP) sounding rocket mission.
