Tax Season and Your Health Insurance Status - New Changes You Should Know

If you received health insurance through the Marketplace, you may have received a tax document in the mail, called Form 1095-A. If you haven't, be on the lookout for it. This form is necessary in order to complete your Federal income tax return. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) suggest that you wait to file your income tax return until you receive this document in the mail, which is slated to arrive by early February. Read entire press release.

Missouri Balance of State to Conduct Count of Sheltered and Unsheltered Homeless Population in 101 Counties January 27, 2016

The Missouri Balance of State (BoS) will conduct a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals and families to follow regulations set forth by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Missouri's BoS point-in-time date is set for January 27, 2016.
The Missouri BoS Continuum of Care is a 101-county area that excludes counties in more metro continuum of care programs. HUD requires a bi-annual count, in odd years, during the last 10 days of January to gauge progress toward national goals of reducing and ending homelessness.  In addition to the biennial count required by HUD, the Missouri Balance of State  and other metro Continua have elected to conduct one point-in-time count annually to better track trends and needs of individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
Each county's leader is responsible for organizing, facilitating and reporting the unsheltered survey results to Missouri Housing Development Commission who reports the numbers to HUD. Sheltered survey information is reported to the Institute for Community Alliances.
For 2016,The Health Care Collaborative of Rural Missouri's Lafayette County Social Services Committee will be leading the count for Lafayette County. In 2015, Lafayette County had 5 sheltered and 33 unsheltered.
To complete the point-in-time count, county leaders need large networks of volunteers to help complete surveys. If you are interested in volunteering, please call Suzanne or Sarah at the Health Care Collaborative of Rural Missouri at 660-259-2440.
