Quality, accessible, and affordable healthcare is every Missourian’s right. But every year Missouri families must make increasingly difficult decisions for how they prioritize spending on prescription drugs and medical bills over the basic costs of living.
At the same time, the Republican-led House has left millions of federal dollars on the table meant for expanding healthcare access to Missourians. Their inaction means less healthy communities, higher premiums for those with coverage, and the loss of hospitals, especially in rural areas.
As your state representative, I’ll support common sense measures like expanding Medicaid, so no Missourian is forced to choose between a decent job and keeping their healthcare.
There was a Purge of 100,000 individuals on Medicaid , Which involved outdated computer systems(Fortran) which did not reference the foodstamp, and Social Security lists meaning those with automatic eligibility under federal law were improperly removed .
Also in order to recieve Targeted Case management , and other services for those with disabilities it requires medicaid , and we are prohibited from using the healthcare exchange to get private insurance .
