Have you heard? Missouri has to make a decision about whether to expand its Medicaid program. There are arguments on both sides: Some believe we should not expand Medicaid because we can’t afford it; others believe we must expand the program or give up billions of federal dollars and the health of our fellow citizens.
Get informed on Medicaid expansion at free, public community forums, hosted by the Missouri Foundation for Health (MFH).
MFH Vice President of Health Policy Ryan Barker will explain – in simple, nonpartisan terms – what Medicaid is and who will be impacted by the decision Missouri legislators are considering. He will discuss why this is a current topic of debate and the potential impact on Missouri families, businesses, and health care providers. There will also be a public Q&A session.
The forum is open to the public at no charge. Check-in/light refreshments will be available at 6:30 p.m., and forums begin at 7 p.m and last roughly 90 minutes.
The upcoming forum will be March 12 at St. Peters Cultural Arts Centre & City Hall, One St. Peters Centre Blvd – St. Charles County.
Registration is requested, however walk-ins are welcomed. To register for the event, click Here.
