We get it – applying for insurance is complicated. We understand how complex and confusing Medicaid and insurances in general can be. If you do not have coverage, Western Missouri Medical Center wants to help you evaluate your options.


Western Missouri Medical Center offers patients a variety of FREE resources through our Patient Accounts Department to help you apply for coverage or financial assistance to enable our patients to have access to trusted healthcare providers.


Medicaid is a federal and state funded health insurance program that works for low-income individuals, families, and seniors who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford health care coverage. Missouri’s Medicaid program, which is known as MO HealthNet, runs through the Missouri Department of Social Services.

Missouri Medicaid Application

The Missouri Medicaid application asks you a series of questions regarding your place of residence, health, level of income, and household members. Applicants also need to provide proof of residence, income, and identity for themselves and all family members, as well as any program-specific documentation required — such as proof of a disability.


What if I don’t qualify for Medicaid?

Then try our Financial Assistance Application. Our financial counselors will work one-on-one with you to help you complete the application and see if you qualify for assistance.
