Missouri taking applications for insurance pool

Friday, July 16, 2010 | 6:22 a.m. CDT

JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri is accepting applications for its insurance pool for uninsured people with pre-existing medical conditions.

The Missouri Health Insurance Pool is part of the federal health care overhaul. It covers Missourians with pre-existing conditions who have not been insured for at least six months.

The high-risk pool will be available until 2014 when federal law requires insurance companies to cover all applicants.

Missouri is getting $81 million from the federal government to subsidize the insurance pool.
