Staff Contact: Daniel Landon
Gov. Jay Nixon has announced that the Missouri Department of Social Services will begin the process of suspending the Women’s Health Services Program. Asserting that the Missouri General Assembly’s funding revisions and restrictions in the state budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1 conflict with the federal waiver that authorizes the program, the governor said that a draft plan to shutter the program would be posted and public comments solicited by the MO HealthNet Director until Sunday, July 31. Services will be available until the waiver suspension request is approved by CMS.
