Missouri Medicaid is a comprehensive health care program jointly funded by the state and the federal government. Through Medicaid, many low-income groups of people, such as pregnant women, families, and the blind, disabled and elderly, can receive medical and welfare assistance. But not only them: Immigrants also have the opportunity to apply for Medicaid.

Permanent Residents can get Medicaid after they have had their green card for five years. Refugees and people who have won their Asylum cases can also receive Medicaid.

Remember: The Trump Public Charge Rule is over.  If your family members receive Medicaid, it will not hurt your chance to get legal status. You can call the Missouri Foundation for Health at (314) 345-5500 for more information regarding the matter.

Now, more adults will be able to get free or low-cost health insurance through Missouri Medicaid – the regional extension of the program. You’ll be able to get the care you need without being restricted by medical bills.

This is the result of Missouri Medicaid’s expansion: to cover more people. A single adult earning up to $17,774 a year or a family of 4 earning up to $36,750 a year could qualify for Medicaid coverage through MO HealthNet. 

Health insurance through MO HealthNet will allow you to get many preventive care services (such as cancer screenings, checkups, and regular immunizations) at no cost to you. If you have tried to get Medicaid in the past and failed because you didn’t qualify, try again. The rules have changed: you may now qualify for Medicaid through MO HealthNet.

Remember: The Trump Public Charge Rule is over.  If your family members receive Medicaid, it will not hurt your chance to get legal status. You can call the Missouri Foundation for Health at (314) 345-5500 for more information regarding the matter.
