0950.080.00 NO AUTOMATIC NEWBORN COVERAGE

Presumptively eligible children are not regular MO HealthNet participants. Thus, children born to presumptively eligible children are not eligible for MO HealthNet coverage under the Newborn policy. If, at the time of birth, the presumptive eligible child (mother) has already been approved for regular MO HealthNet for Kids, Pregnant Women and Parents, the child born to the eligible child (mother) qualifies for MO HealthNet as a newborn.
