About Managed Care
Managed Care is a way for you to get the health care services that you need. You need to be approved for MO HealthNet before you can get help. If you do not currently have health care through MO HealthNet, you will need to apply for services.
As a Managed Care Program member, you receive your health care services through a MO HealthNet Managed Care health plan. Each health plan has a network of doctors, hospitals and other providers across the state of Missouri who you may see for care. Your health plan will help you see the right doctor when you need to and coordinate your care to help you stay healthy.
Once you are assigned to a health plan to get your health care benefits, you will need to:
- Decide if you want to stay in your assigned health plan or change to another health plan
- If you want to stay with this health plan, you do not need to do anything
- If you do not want the health plan that was assigned to you, you will need to change your health plan within 90 days
If you have any questions, contact the MO HealthNet Managed Care Enrollment Helpline 1-800-348-6627.
