Missouri Supreme Court Makes Clear Path For Medicaid Expansion
The Missouri Supreme Court paves the way for Medicaid expansion by issuing a judgment in favor of a 2020 ballot initiative.
After voters approved expanding Medicare in August 2020, the Missouri Supreme Court has ruled unanimously in favor of the initiative. Overturning a lower court's ruling, the court stated that the 2020 initiative did not violate state law. This decision will allow around 275,000 individuals to become eligible for health coverage.
