  • House Moves to Create State Innovation Waiver Task Force (HB 780)

    Rep. Dohrman;

    You state you support this bill because the state needs to move away from the ACA. Keep in mine, Missouri legislators voted annually to not expand Medicaid. Hence, Missouri is not a full participant in the ACA although tens of thousands of Missourians were able to sign up...AND, tens of thousand of Missourians are without healthcare. The expansion of Medicaid will allow those who fall in between to have affordable care. One thing that is not mentioned enough, expanding Medicaid will help the hospitals in the rural communities you represent to be above water.
