Why are we expanding Medicaid in Missouri? Get answers at a forum Monday

Feb 19, 2013 -- 6:23pm


Missouri has a decision to make about whether we expand our Medicaid program, related to the 2010 Healthcare Reform Laws.  Due to the Supreme Courts decision last summer regarding the legislation, states are allowed to decide for themselves.  The Missouri Foundation for Health will host a community forum Monday February 25th to discuss the issue.  Foundation Vice President of Health Policy Ryan Barker tells KZIM-KSIM that their goal is to provide non-partisan insight.  The Foundation provides grant funding and education, fosters community partnerships, and serves as a leading, nonpartisan voice on health system topics of importance to the community and policymakers. The forum is open to the public, and will begin at 7:00 pm at the Osage Center, 1625 North Kingshighway in Cape.  For more info, call Chris at 314-345-5576.
