The Missouri Senate Appropriations Committee chairman is content to let the Missouri Supreme Court decide the issue of Medicaid expansion. Cosby Republican Dan Hegeman notes that while voters approved Amendment Two in August, there was no funding mechanism for it:
Medicaid expansion supporters say it would expand Medicaid for residents between the ages of 19 and 64 with an income level at or below 133 percent of the federal poverty level. Three women are suing the state, for not funding Medicaid expansion. A Cole County judge will hear the case on June 18.
