MISSOURI MEDICAID UPDATE: PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS OF KEY MEDICAID PROVISIONS IN SB 539 AS PASSED BY THE MISSOURI SENATE AND RELATED MEDICAID PROPOSALS

This paper provides a summary and analysis of the Medicaid provisions of Senate Bill 539, which was recently passed by the Missouri Senate.  SB 539 is the enabling legislation that would allow the State to implement many of the proposals that were included in the Governor’s proposed budget for the Missouri Medicaid program.  The bill also includes Medicaid proposals that go beyond the scope of what was proposed in the Governor’s budget and a number of provisions that do not relate to the Governor’s proposed Medicaid cuts.  For example, the bill revises Missouri’s Senior Rx Program to adapt to the new Medicare Modernization Act, which changes the way that “dually eligible” individuals (people who receive both Medicare and Medicaid) would obtain prescription drugs.  The bill also changes the way “personal care assistance” is provided and adds new financial eligibility requirements to Missouri’s Adoption Assistance program.

287.067. 1.

Ordinary diseases of life to which the general public is exposed outside of the employment shall not be compensable, except where the diseases follow as an incident of an occupational disease as defined in this section. The disease need not to have been foreseen or expected but after its contraction it must appear to have had its origin in a risk connected with the employment and to have flowed from that source as a rational consequence.
