Healthcare Reform/Expansion Shows Signs of Life

Serious efforts to reform and expand Medicaid got off to a slow start in this year’s session of the Missouri General Assembly and no bill ultimately passed. Now both the Senate and the House have established study committees to come up with recommendations for next year’s session, which begins in January. Senator Gary Romine (R-Farmington) will head up the Senate committee, while State Representative Jay Barnes (R-Jefferson City) will chair the House group. The MCC will monitor the work of the committees in the coming months.
