MO HealthNet - General Information

As described by the Missouri Department of Social Services, the purpose of MO HealthNet is to purchase and monitor health care services for low income and vulnerable citizens of the State of Missouri. The agency assures quality health care through development of service delivery systems, standards setting and enforcement, and education of providers and participants. The MO HealthNet Division is fiscally accountable for maximum and appropriate utilization of resources.

The MO HealthNet (Medicaid) MICA provides data about this recipient pool of Missouri residents based on county of residence, not county of services.
