Medicaid for Pregnant Women and Newborns - This is the state's Medicaid program for pregnant women and newborns. This program provides healthcare coverage, including sixty-day postpartum coverage, for pregnant women whose family income does not exceed 185% of the federal poverty level for their household size. Once eligible, the coverage continues through the postpartum period despite subsequent increases in income.

Children born to a woman eligible for and receiving MC+ or Medicaid on the date of the infant's birth continue to be eligible for MC+ coverage throughout the first year of life as long as the child remains in the mother's home and maintains Missouri residence.

MC+ for Kids - This program provides healthcare coverage for children under 19 years of age whose family income falls within certain guidelines.  Some participants may have to pay premiums and/or co-payments, but the total spent will not total more than 5% of the family's annual income. Once this limit is reached there will be no more premiums or co-pays.

Medical Assistance for Families (MAF) - This program provides healthcare coverage for families with income that does not exceed the July 16, 1996 Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) income standards.
