Sunshine and Records Requests

Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Sunshine and Records Requests

All requests from media or journalism students must be submitted here.

A Sunshine Law request is a request for a specific public record that is in existence at the time of the request. The Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) is, like other state and local public governmental bodies, subject to Missouri's Open Meetings and Records ("Sunshine") Law.

Under the Sunshine Law and other state laws and regulations (§§ 37.070 and 109.180, RSMo), it is the policy of DHSS to carry out its mission with full transparency to the public unless otherwise required by law. State and federal law and regulations determine what DHSS may provide, and whether any information in the records must be redacted or edited to keep protected information confidential.

Please use the fillable form below to submit your request electronically to DHSS. Specifically identify the records you seek with as much detail as possible to help us locate the records.
