On August 4, 2020, Missouri voters said loud and clear that expanding Medicaid just makes sense! As of August 10, 2021, following a ruling by the Supreme Court of Missouri, Missouri Medicaid has expanded – giving more than 275,000 Missourians access to low-cost of free health insurance. Expanding the Medicaid program will also bring our taxpayer dollars back home and save state funding, help keep rural hospitals open, and create jobs.
We are committed to working with the state to support full and timely implementation of Medicaid expansion. This includes applying the best practices of other states that have seen improved health outcomes and economic gains as a result of their efforts. We look forward to working with a wide range of partners and the state to help enroll Missourians who are newly eligible.
