Missouri Medicaid plan would shift costs to hospitals
Hospitals would relieve the state burden for expanding healthcare to low-income residents under a proposal by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon. The plan would extend Medicaid to an additional 34,800 parents at an annual cost of about $143 million. Of that, the federal government would pick up $93 million and hospitals would pay the rest, using funds now set aside for uncompensated care.
