What You Need To Know About Missouri Medicaid Expansion
August 01, 2021
Missouri Medicaid has expanded to cover more people.
This is a victory for all Missourians. Now, more low-income Missourians can get new access to health insurance at no cost to the enrollee.
Here's what happened.
In August 2020, Missouri voters approved Amendment 2 to expand Medicaid in Missouri.
However, the Missouri legislature did not include funds for expansion in the state budget. After months of legal battles, the Missouri Supreme Court upheld the will of the voters on July 22, 2021.
The newly eligible expansion population needs to enroll in Medicaid to access coverage and care.
