SUBJECT 1: Caseload Update

  1. Caseload Update:  September 2008 did it again, setting a new all time record for September and FFY2008.  September’s caseload at 149,592 was 2,149 higher than just the previous month, and broke the long standing trend of September taking a drop from August, which historically was the highest month.

    FFY2008 finished the year 100,384 participants higher than the end of FFY2007.  Also of note, September’s count of I-NP (Infants-No Package, i.e., fully breastfed infants that receive no check) also set a record reported high level of 1,154.  Many thanks to all the agencies and staff who are working hard to see these additional participants.  If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Jim Schindler at James.Schindler@health.mo.gov or Lyn Konstant at Lyn.Konstant@health.mo.gov
