What is Missouri Custom?
Missouri Custom is a direct-to-employer product designed for businesses with 50 or more employees in Boone and Cole counties. We focus on managing costly health care issues through an advanced technology platform, preferred rates and customizable plans. Our population health management model seeks to improve the health outcomes of employees while reducing costs. Our custom structure allows employees to have flexibility when choosing a TPA, PBM and Stoploss carrier.
The benefits of collaborative care
Our innovative approach to health care is designed to improve member satisfaction and the health of the communities we serve. We recognize that when insurance costs increase, employers often find themselves unable absorb the cost – resulting in additional costs to their employees. With that in mind, we’ve developed a program with customizable options that address the rising cost of care. Our plans are compliant with the Affordable Care Act and feature:
Lower Administrative Costs
Options to Meet Your Needs
We have 11 approved plan designs for groups with less than 100 employees. For groups with more than 100 employees, we will work with you to customize a plan. Missouri Custom allows for alternate funding, level funded, or partially self-funded programs.Sample Plans
Our comprehensive care network includes University of Missouri Health Care, Capital Region Medical Center and additional preferred providers.

Missouri Custom’s care coordination model is on the forefront of managing population health, and we strive to enhance the patient experience and outcomes as well as control the cost of care for the benefit of communities.
In a traditional insurance program, the insurance carrier provides medical and disease management. In our plan, enhanced access to primary care allows the provider to take ownership of the members’ care. That way, the member and the provider are empowered to manage health.
While traditional networks feature duplication of services that cost employers money, Missouri Custom incorporates a shared electronic medical record (EMR) — using technology to simplify the health care journey, improve outcomes and reduce duplication of services.
Using Technology to Better Coordinate Care
Patients with a primary care physician experience lower overall health care costs, better preventive care, increased satisfaction with health care, fewer hospitalizations, and better management of chronic diseases.
Chronic conditions can be costly for patients, payors and health systems. Our state-of-the-art information systems allow us to recommend action plans to address potential high-cost health care issues.
We believe in transparency. Although traditional reports only incorporate claims data, Missouri Custom incorporates both claims and care management information to provide a more complete picture of your overall health care costs.
