Do I qualify?

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). For the first time, more adults qualify for low-cost or free health insurance through MO HealthNet. This includes parents who have not qualified before, as well as childless adults.

For example, a single adult making up to $17,774 a year, or a family of four making up to $36,750 a year, may qualify for Medicaid through MO HealthNet.

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.
