Missouri is participating in a health insurance marketplace run by the federal government.

What does this mean for individuals, families and small businesses in Missouri? Basically, it means there is a new way for you to obtain health insurance and have control over your health insurance options.

So, how do you get signed up? First, you need to do a little homework. That’s where we come into help. Enroll Missouri provides a centralized source of information for individuals, small businesses and others to learn more about the health insurance marketplace, opportunities for premium assistance to purchase health insurance and more. Once you know your options, then you can get signed up for health coverage.

So, are you ready to enroll Missouri? Great — let’s get started!

Medicaid Enrollment

Missouri Medicaid applications are now being submitted through the new insurance marketplace, and the uninsured are only allowed to apply for insurance coverage through the marketplace or through Medicaid. 

New processes can be difficult to learn, and we are here to help. Here are some tips for accessing the MEDES (Missouri Eligibility Determination & Enrollment System) citizen portal, along with a participant guide for applying for health care based on MAGI (modified adjusted gross income) calculation. Here's a map of MAGI Processing Center locations.
