Uninsured women between ages 18 and 55 who will lose full MO HealthNet eligibility when their post-partum period ends, may remain eligible for Extended Women’s Health Services (EWHS). EWHS continues for a maximum of one year after MPW eligibility expires.

NOTE: For insurance to cause ineligibility for EWHS, it must cover family planning services (e.g. Medicare covers family planning).

When coverage for this program ends, an ex parte review is required. If no other eligibility exists when closing EWHS cases, the eligibility system must send the appropriate notices.

Refer to manual section 1870.015.00 Healthcare Coverage (UWHS) for services covered by EWHS.
