Shaping Policies. Creating Opportunities.

You Did It!

With your help, Missouri voters approved Medicaid expansion! After a decade, Missourians can finally reap the health and economic benefits of expansion.

Finally, around 230,000 more Missourians will have access to health care services. Moreover, expansion will create jobs, boost our economy, keep rural hospitals open, and create savings in our health system.

It was a long road, but the persistence of so many Missourians like you, Missouri has become the 38th state to expand Medicaid, making Missouri families and communities healthier.

We will continue our work to ensure that expansion is implemented according to the will of Missouri voters. We look forward to working with policymakers to carry forward what other states have learned as they have implemented expansion and improved health outcomes and state economies.

Congratulations, and onward to the implementation of expansion in 2021.

Many thanks,

Missouri Budget Project Team
