Public Hearing Concerning Missouri’s Gateway to Better Health Section 1115
Demonstration Project Number: 11-W-00250/7
On September 1, 2017, The State of Missouri, Department of Social Services (DSS), received a five-year extension of its Gateway to Better Health Demonstration from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Under the terms of the extension, the Gateway to Better Health Demonstration Project provides primary and specialty care services to uninsured individuals residing in St. Louis City and St. Louis County, ages 19 through 64, with family incomes below 100 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL) who do not qualify for Medicaid. The program was originally approved in July 2010 and is currently scheduled to expire on December 31, 2022. Outcomes of the Gateway to Better Health Demonstration for the past year are outlined in the attached annual report.
The public is invited to comment on the progress of the demonstration at a virtual public hearing. Attendees may join the meeting electronically via Zoom, through either its video or teleconference features.
Details: The public hearing will be held as part of the regularly scheduled Community Advisory Board meeting of the St. Louis Regional Health Commission (SLRHC). As the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic continues to unfold, the SLRHC is following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommendations for social distancing and will hold this meeting virtually. The state and the SLRHC will take verbal and written comments during the public hearing. Community input provided will be summarized for CMS.
