Missouri

The Missouri Health Improvement Act of 2007 included a provision that the Department of Social Services should create health improvement plans for all participants in MO HealthNet to include coordinated care plans and be enrolled in a health care home. The Missouri Foundation for Health launched the Advancing Chronic Care through Excellence in Systems and Support (ACCESS) program in 2010, designed to improve the delivery of chronic illness care. ACCESS works with Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), local Health Departments, hospitals, and academic health centers through a learning collaborative model to improve team care and care coordination.  In 2011, Missouri was awarded the first approved State Plan Amendment (SPA) to implement their Section 2703 Health Homes program. To accelerate the transformation to a Health Home model, the Missouri Foundation for Health and the Healthcare Foundation of Greater Kansas City funded an 18-month Learning Collaborative for behavioral health and primary care teams.
