Missouri Senate passes revamped healthcare bill

Kansas City Star, April 29, 2008

The Missouri Senate has approved legislation that includes a new version of Gov. Matt Blunt's plan to help the uninsured. The bill includes a wide range of programs intended to make consumers more aware of the true cost of healthcare and to help them make informed choices. It would also set up an organization to publish reports on medical mistakes. Democrats are criticizing the plan, saying that it fails to provide coverage for all of the 90,604 low-income residents kicked off Missouri's Medicaid program three years ago.
