Missouri program offers Medicaid recipients visits to primary care doctor

Kansas City Star, August 14, 2008

Missouri Medicaid, now renamed MO HealthNet, is offering to provide as many as 210,000 Medicaid recipients with "medical homes," a clinic or doctor's office they can rely on for their basic care. The $33 million program is aimed at Medicaid recipients who are not already covered through a managed-care program. Those eligible include virtually all people with disabilities and elderly people with low incomes who are receiving Medicaid.
