Renewals starting for Medical Assistance Recipients

Everyone who receives Medical Assistance will need to complete a renewal packet within the next year. If you have moved in the past three years or you will be moving soon, update your contact information to ensure you get your packet. You can expect to get renewal forms about two months before the month you originally applied for health insurance. For example, if you applied in December, your MA renewal forms will be mailed to you in October. Return the requested materials by the deadline to prevent losing your coverage. Follow the instructions included in the packet for how to submit it.

The Child Support Department's role is to promote parental responsibility so children receive the financial support of both parents.  St Louis County Child Support helps families become and remain self-sufficient through the collection of support.

The Public Assistance Department administers many state and federal programs that provide aid for those in need.  Different types of assistance include programs that help with medical care, food, child care, and shelter assistance.
