Nursing Home header

Missouri has two programs for eligible individuals needing financial assistance in nursing homes. One program is the “Supplemental Nursing Care Program.” Under this program, if a person meets eligibility requirements as determined by the Family Support Division and resides in a nursing home that is licensed but not Title XIX (Medicaid) certified, that person may receive a cash grant. The other assistance program is “Vendor Nursing Care,” this is a MO HealthNet program in which reimbursement is made to the provider of nursing services.
