Missouri General Assembly: Please Expand Medicaid in Missouri

Missouri has an unprecedented opportunity to expand health coverage to 260,000 uninsured, working people and create 24,000 new jobs by expanding Medicaid to cover all adults up to 138% of the Federal Poverty Level (about $26,000 a year for a family of three). Our legislators need to hear from us that we want them to get this done - for our neighbors, our communities, and our state.

Letter to
Missouri General Assembly
Chair, Missouri House Budget Committee Representative Rick Stream
Chair, Missouri Senate Budget Committee Senator Kurt Schaefer
I urge you to support a full expansion of Medicaid in Missouri, up to 138% of the federal poverty level. Expanding Medicaid is good for Missouri's economy - it will create 24,000 new jobs, bring $2 billion into the state, and protect our hospitals. It is also good for Missouri's people, making coverage available to 260,000 hard-working, uninsured people.

Please do everything in your power to pass full Medicaid expansion in Missouri.
