The mother of an unborn child enrolled in the Show-Me Healthy Babies (SMHB) program must be uninsured. Uninsured individuals are defined as persons who do not have health insurance and for SMHB, do not have insurance that covers pregnancy related services. A person covered by health insurance at the time of a SMHB eligibility determination is ineligible, unless:
- the insurance enrollment is already paid for by the Health Insurance Premium Payment (HIPP) Program; or
- an individual has exceeded the annual or lifetime coverage maximums of his or her health plan for all healthcare services.
