Help ensure Missouri children & families have access to Medicaid coverage

Take Action to Help Ensure Missouri Children Have Healthcare

By adopting 12-month continuous Medicaid eligibility, Missouri can allow children to maintain their Medicaid health coverage for a full year, stabilizing coverage and ensuring consistent care, without the state needing to process additional paperwork. This means: 

  • Kids who have health insurance without coverage gaps have better health outcomes.

  • Modest fluctuations in family monthly income won’t result in kids unnecessarily losing eligibility for Medicaid & CHIP.

  • A decrease in unnecessary administrative & hospitalization costs for kids.

“One of the true blessings of the public health emergency is we haven’t had to turn anyone away. Children are benefiting from routine checkups and chronic disease management, like asthma follow-ups and those sorts of things. Allowing that gap to be filled by the CHIP program is really keeping kids healthy and strong.”

– Dr. Maya Moody
