Why should I enroll in health insurance?

When you are living paycheck to paycheck to take care of yourself and your family, you shouldn’t have to worry about the cost of health care. Free or low-cost health insurance through MO HealthNet puts health care within reach. 

When you are covered, you don’t have to choose between your health and taking care of your family. You can get the care you need without going bankrupt from medical bills. MO HealthNet covers doctor visits, yearly checkups, prescription medicines, mental health services, dental care, and more. Getting covered can help you focus on your health – not medical bills.

Even if you are healthy and do not think you need access to health care, preventive care is essential and helps you stay healthy. With health insurance through MO HealthNet, you can get many preventive care services at no cost to you. This includes birth control, cancer screenings, medical exams, and routine shots.

Do I qualify for Missouri Medicaid (MO HealthNet)?

You may qualify for free health insurance.

The rules have changed. Missouri Medicaid has expanded to cover more people. Now, more adults can get low-cost or free health insurance through Missouri Medicaid (called MO HealthNet). This includes parents who have not qualified before, as well as childless adults.

You can enroll in Medicaid through MO HealthNet online at bit.ly/MOHealthNet or by phone at 855-373-9994. You can apply for MO HealthNet all year-round. There is no deadline.

If you don't qualify for Medicaid through MO HealthNet, you may be able to get covered through the Health Insurance Marketplace.

What are my options if I am under 26?

Children can stay on their parent’s health insurance plans until they turn 26. It does not matter if you are married, living with your parents, in school, claimed as a dependent, or eligible to enroll in your own employer’s plan.

However, your parents are not required to cover you. If you do not have coverage through your parents, Missouri Medicaid (known as MO HealthNet) or the Health Insurance Marketplace may be an option.

Where can I go for care?

Each insurance plan has different in-network providers and hospitals that can have lower costs than out-of-network providers. You can go to your health insurer's website or call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card to find a covered provider in your area.
