Cover Missouri

Missouri Foundation for Health has awarded a $250,000 grant for CAASTLC’s continued work, for a second year, assisting low to moderate income individuals and families without health insurance to enroll into the Missouri Marketplace.  Our Federal and State licensed certified application staff will continue to reach out into the St. Louis County area to assist with online enrollments.  Many families ended up paying less than $100/month for health coverage.  Nationwide, Missouri ranked 13th with the most enrollments into the Affordable Care Act Marketplace.  Nationally, over 10 million people, previously uninsured, are now covered, creating a better America.   CAASTLC is proud to be part of this monumental social improvement.  CAASTLC offers enrollment information and counseling at our main office and South St. Louis County at the MEAAA building located at 225 Lemay Ferry Rd.
