Legislative inaction hasn't sat well for numerous Missourians across the state who have urged the Missouri legislature to expand Medicaid. Over Spring Break, community leaders have led several in-district events to raise awareness and urge legislators to close the coverage gap by expanding Medicaid this session.
In Springfield and across the state, Missourians hold in-district actions to highlight the importance of Medicaid expansion this session. Crystal Williams with Missouri Health Care for All stated, "Our legislators were elected to tackle the tough problems. There are many ideas on how to both reform and expand Medicaid and it is time our elected officials find a real solution to this problem. It's time to have the debate and close the coverage gap."
