Medicaid Expansion Passes!
On August 4, 2020, voters decided that Medicaid expansion was the right thing for Missouri. Now the policy work begins to ensure that more than 230,000 uninsured Missourians will be covered starting July 2021. MRHA is grateful for the life-saving votes to extend Medicaid to many of the state’s essential workforce.
Low participation in the 2020 Census could negatively impact Missouri. The 2010 Census resulted in the loss of one congressional seat and hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding. It’s estimated for every child and adult not counted, Missouri loses $1,300. This is especially critical to rural Missouri.
