MO HealthNet Alert:  LCSW and LMSW Medicaid Bulletin


NASW MO would like to inform you that Mo HealthNet has released a provider bulletin stating LCSWs, LMSWs, LPCs, and PLPCs may be reimbursed for medically necessary behavioral health services for MO HealthNet covered children and adults. A state plan amendment issued in late 2018 permitted the state to make this change, and it's taking effect for dates of service on or after January 1, 2019.  Please make sure to pass this on to your employers, supervisors, and billing departments.  


You may obtain a copy of the MO HealthNet Provider Bulletin at  ( Dec. 28, 2018: Vol. 41 no 34).  


NASW Missouri Chapter continues to strive to advance the profession and address the issues our social workers serve for the clients.

Medicare has started sending new cards with new Medicare Numbers to people with Medicare. Your new Medicare card will include a new number unique to you, instead of your current Social Security-based number. This will help to protect you against fraud.

Starting this month, people who are enrolling in Medicare for the first time will be among the first in the country to get the new cards. If you have Medicare already, you’ll get your new card over the coming months. Medicare will mail cards on a rolling basis, sending a new card with a new number at no cost to everyone with Medicare over the next year. To update your official mailing address, visit your MySocialSecurity account, or call 1-800-772-1213.


If you want to know when new cards start mailing to your area, visit, and sign up to get email alerts from Medicare. We’ll send you an email when cards start mailing in your state, and we’ll also email you about other important Medicare topics. While the cards have a new look, your Medicare coverage and benefits will stay the same.

Check the status of your new card!
