Hardworking Missourians Need Access to Healthcare

We did it! Missourians made their voices heard and voted YES on Amendment 2, expanding Medicaid to hundreds of thousands of Missourians. This is a victory for all Missourians, but there is still work to be done. Stay tuned as we work to create a program that benefits all Missourians.

Healthcare for Missouri, a coalition of voters and patients, medical professionals, business leaders, and organizations, is committed to expanding access to healthcare to more than 200,000 hardworking Missourians.

Together, we collected enough signatures to get Medicaid expansion on the ballot. It’s even more urgent now that we expand Medicaid to keep our rural hospitals open, protect Missouri jobs, bring billions of our tax dollars home from Washington, and help hundreds of thousands of hardworking Missourians and their families gain coverage.

Make your voice heard and vote YES on 2 on August 4.

 

What’s at Stake?

No one should have to choose between paying for life-saving care and putting food on the table, but that’s exactly the choice that more than 230,000 Missourians have to make every day. 

Medicaid expansion would deliver healthcare to thousands of parents, seniors, and hardworking folks who earn less than $18,000 a year. And it would bring more than a billion of our tax dollars home from Washington every year to keep rural hospitals open, create thousands of jobs, and boost our economy. That’s money that 36 other states that have expanded Medicaid get, but Missouri has lost out on for years.
