St. Louis was selected as a national model for improving access to care for the safety net population
ST. LOUIS, April 2, 2019 — The State of Missouri has received approval to provide substance use disorder treatment services to its “Gateway to Better Health” (Gateway) Pilot Program population from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). In addition to current services, the Gateway network of community primary care providers will now be able to offer office visits, counseling and generic medications for substance use disorder treatment to the Gateway population.
As part of our mission to improve the health of uninsured citizens in St. Louis City and County, the RHC produces an annual “Access to Care” data book to review community-wide progress toward strengthening the health care safety net system in the region. Download the report to learn more and contact Rikki Menn (RMenn@stlrhc.org) to schedule a presentation about the status of our healthcare safety net.
