My name is Maggie Bounds, I own and operate a Home Health Care Agency here in Missouri, Heavens Help Care Agency LLC. A Bill was passed on today 1-22-2018 Senate Bill 228 allowing needles and syringe exchange to become law. I can't comprehend that the Senate thinks that making Drug Abuse Accessible for users is more important then Expanding Medicaid in Missouri. There are 32 states that already have Expanded Medicaid. Missouri is one of the 18 states that has not jumped on board. Nearly 300,000 Missourians are unable to afford the necessary health services because they fall within the "coverage gap"  This means they don't have coverage because they earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, BUT not enough to qualify for subsidies through the state health insurance marketplace. Expanding Medicaid will support and estimated $24,000 healthcare jobs and bring $6.8 billion in federal funds to Missouri. It's time for lawmakers to get on board Missourians need you.
