The Gateway to Better Health (GTBH) program provides benefits for uninsured adults, age 19-64 who reside in St. Louis City or St. Louis County and who meet certain eligibility criteria. Coverage benefits include preventive, family, and well care and are provided at participating primary care centers.
Effective 10/1/2021, the application form for GTBH is the Application for Health Coverage & Help Paying Costs (IM-1SSL). The participating health clinic will assist the participant in filling out the IM-1SSL application and return it to the St. Louis City-Chouteau office. Individuals may only apply at a participating health clinic. All GTBH applications will be processed at the Chouteau office.
