Over 2500 Missourians from all over the state came to the Capitol at Jefferson City for the Missouri Medicaid Coalition’s Medicaid Expansion Lobby Day yesterday, Tuesday, April 16.

We had so many Missourians who want Full Medicaid Expansion, we were able to talk to almost every legislator in the Missouri Capitol! We let them know that expanding Medicaid to the FULL 138% was best for Missouri because it would:

  • Insure 260,000 Missourians who currently do not have access to affordable health care
  • Create 24,000 jobs in Missouri
  • Prevent critical area hospitals from closing
