Medicaid Expansion is Essential to Missouri

In the next several days, the House will be discussing expanding health coverage to over 260,000 Missourians during this legislative session.

Thanks to federal action, Missouri can make this expansion with no additional state dollars.  Analysis done by Missouri's budget director demonstrates that Missouri can expand Medicaid with no impact on the state's general revenue budget for the better part of a decade. This expansion is essential.  Tell your Representative to protect access to critical health services.  Call toll-free, 1-800-378-1844

Due to the Affordable Care Act, federal assistance to hospitals will be decreasing by hundreds of millions of dollars per year.  Without expansion, rural seniors could lose access to emergency health services in their communities.  Without expansion, Missouri will lose thousands of high paying health care jobs to other states.  It is of utmost importance that the General Assembly take action now.

Tell your Representative that Missouri seniors can't afford to lose access to their local hospitals and doctors, 1-800-378-1844 .
