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.

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.
