DHSS has established ten advisory committees - one for each of the application scoring criteria established by the Missouri Constitution – to review application scoring questions to be drafted by the Department.

The review process is as follows:

  • Public feedback regarding the drafted questions can be provided through the online suggestion form until a few days prior to each committee meeting. The deadlines for submitting public comment and schedule of committee meetings are below.
  • DHSS will make revisions based on public comments and provide public comments and revised questions to advisory committee members.
  • Each advisory committee will then meet and discuss the draft questions, suggest modifications and make a recommendation to DHSS. Further, based on the committee’s recommended questions, the committee will recommend weights for each question within the committee’s purview. Public comment will not be allowed during committee meetings.
  • DHSS will review the recommendations and finalize the questions and weights, which will be incorporated into the final rules that are due on June 4, per Article XIV of the Constitution.

Topic and individual question weights will be released following the conclusion of the advisory committee process.
