Starting on April 1st the Missouri Department of Social Services (DSS) will resume Annual Renewals to check if Missourians who have MO HealthNet
(Missouri Medicaid) are still eligible to keep their coverage!

The Annual Renewal process will run from
April 2024-April 2025. You can check the Annual Renewal Timeline to learn when you can expect to be contacted by the state.


2024 Medicaid Update – Restarting Premium/Spend-Down Payments

If you have the type of Missouri Medicaid coverage which includes monthly premiums or spend-down payments, be aware that these payments will be restarting in June 2024.

You should never have to pay for assistance with Medicaid Renewal!

There are a number of critical things you should to do to keep your coverage:

Make sure DSS has your current address. 
If you have moved since you got your MO HealthNet coverage (Medicaid or CHIP), you can update your address in three ways:

If DSS is able to determine you are still eligible without any need for you to fill out a new form, you will get a notice in the mail telling you that your coverage continues.

If you get an Annual Renewal Form, fill it out, sign it and return to DSS.
If you get an Annual Renewal Form in the mail, you must return it to DSS within 55 days. DSS will use this Form to determine if you are still eligible for MO HealthNet. Remember to sign the form!

There are FOUR ways you can submit your annual renewal form:

    • ONLINE: You can create an account in the Family Support Division Benefit Portal, which allows you to see when your annual renewal is due, and to complete and submit your form online. CLICK HERE for  the Family Support Division step-by-step video tutorial about how to create your account.
    • IN PERSON:  Go to your local resource center to return your completed form or to get help completing it.
    • BY PHONE: Call 855.373.4636 and select the MO Healthnet Option to complete your annual renewal by phone.
    • BY MAIL: Return your completed and signed yellow form to the address shown on the letter you recieved.

If you get a form but don’t return it in time (or don’t sign it)—don’t panic!
If you get a notice telling you that your coverage is ending because your form was late, not received, or not signed, you should turn in a fully-complete, signed form as soon as possible. DSS can still perform your Annual Renewal within 90 days after sending you the notice ending your coverage.
