0950.010.00 QUALIFIED ENTITY

Section 1920A of the Social Security Act allows states to determine the type of qualified entities to use. Currently, Missouri is limiting qualified entities to children’s hospitals, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), and Rural Health Clinics (RHCs). Prior to Senate Bill 577 (2007) only children’s hospitals were designated as qualified entities.
