The Missouri State Senate is in recess until 4 p.m. Monday. This is the perfect time to make your voice heard about Senate Bill 28.
SB 28 seeks to take federal funds for Medicaid services as a block grant (or a set, capped amount of funds). This proposed legislation would dramatically alter Missouri’s Medicaid program and would jeopardize health services for seniors, people with disabilities, including people living with serious mental illness, and children, and leave Missouri taxpayers responsible for extra costs. As a result, the state of Missouri would be responsible for any unanticipated spending needs, resulting in either increased costs to the state, or cuts to eligibility or health services for our most vulnerable citizens.
While Medicaid’s current financing structure can respond to the economy or changing demographics, SB 28 leaves thousands of Missourians vulnerable to dramatic healthcare cuts and puts Missouri at financial risk.
