Temporary Medicaid & Medicaid for Pregnant Women

Temporary Medicaid and Medicaid for Pregnant Women are publicly funded health insurance programs for pregnant women.

  • Temporary (“Temp”) Medicaid is designed to provide short-term medical coverage during the eligibility determination period until a woman is approved for Medicaid for Pregnant Women (MPW). Social services specialists are able to assist Boone County residents with Temp Medicaid.

  • Medicaid for Pregnant Women is a free, state-funded insurance program for pregnant women which covers prenatal and delivery services.

Applications for both programs may be completed with the Division of Social Services at 1005 W Worley Street in Columbia.
