Advocates For Family Health Program


The Advocates for Family Health Program assists children, families and pregnant women who are eligible for Missouri’s family Medicaid programs: MO HealthNet for Kids, MO HealthNet for Families, and MO HealthNet for Pregnant Women.

This program assists people who are enrolled in MO HealthNet managed care plans. The program also helps client-families who are experiencing problems in obtaining or maintaining their MO HealthNet coverage.

Advocates for Family Health may be able to help:

• If your MO HealthNet managed care plan denies services.

• If you are having trouble finding a provider who accepts your MO HealthNet managed care plan.

• If you have trouble changing your MO HealthNet managed care plan.

• If your premium payments are not being processed correctly.

• If you applied for family Medicaid (MO HealthNet) coverage or your coverage was stopped and you think there was a mistake.

 We also participate in community education activities and public forums and task forces.
