Quality, accessible, and affordable healthcare is every Missourian’s right. But every year Missouri families must make difficult decisions regarding how they prioritize spending on prescription drugs and medical bills over the basic costs of living.
At the same time, millions of federal dollars were left on the table meant for expanding healthcare access to Missourians. Their inaction means less healthy communities, higher premiums for those with coverage, reduced productivity, and the loss of hospitals, especially in rural areas.
As your state representative, I’ll support common-sense measures to increase enrollment and fully fund Medicaid, so no Missourian is forced to choose between a good job and keeping their healthcare.
