Missouri's Medicaid program is called MO HealthNet. MO HealthNet covers qualified medical expenses for individuals who meet certain eligibility requirements. Depending on the type of coverage they qualify for, participants will get their services through the MO HealthNet Managed Care Program or the MO HealthNet Fee-For-Service Program. Providers may choose to enroll with one or both of these programs:

  • Fee-For-Service – Fee-For-Service Providers must be enrolled in the MO HealthNet program to provide medical services. Those who participate in the MO HealthNet Program agree to accept MO HealthNet payment as reimbursement in full for any services provided to MO HealthNet participants.
  • Managed Care – Providers who would like to offer services through the MO HealthNet Managed Care Program should contract with a MO HealthNet Managed Care health plan directly. Services are provided in accordance with the terms and conditions of the contract between MO HealthNet and the MO HealthNet Managed Care health plans. Participants enrolled in MO HealthNet Managed Care get their services through the health plan's provider network. The health plan network may include providers not enrolled in the Fee-For-Service Program.
