MO HealthNet (Medicaid)
The way MO HealthNet (Medicaid) coverage is provided will change beginning May 1, 2017. All families were notified beginning in January to choose a Managed Care Health Plan (Home State, Missouri Care or United Health Care) and a Primary Care Provider. If families did not choose a health plan and a provider, one was chosen for them.
Below is a link to a flyer posted on the DSS website that helps MO HealthNet Managed Care participants understand the steps they need to take to change Managed Care plans in the 90 days after May 1. This information also educates managed care participants on circumstances that allow someone to change plans past that 90-day timeframe.

Participants can choose to be in the MO HealthNet Fee-for-Service program instead of the Managed Care program if they meet certain criteria.
