Listen to the Gov.

A great opportunity awaits the state — Missouri can offset pending cuts to the health care sector, create jobs, strengthen the local and state economies, keep employers’ health care costs under control and improve the health of the workforce. How can all this be accomplished? This will happen if Missouri chooses to reform Medicaid.

In his State of the State address last week, Gov. Jay Nixon offered his support for Medicaid expansion. Among the numerous bills that lawmakers will discuss, few are as vital to the state’s health and economic growth. Studies have shown that participating in federal Medicaid reform will pay dividends for Missouri.

To help you to stay informed, Missouri Health Matters has created a page with the most recent research and news about Medicaid reform. They strongly encourage you to show your support by signing the petition and emailing your state lawmakers.

As Gov. Nixon said, “Strengthening Medicaid will strengthen our economy. Without question, it’s the smart thing to do”.
