Missouri governor hopeful unveils $1 billion health plan
Kansas City Star, July 23, 2008
Jay Nixon, the likely Democratic nominee for governor of Missouri, has unveiled a nearly $1 billion plan to expand healthcare for low-income Missourians and make low-cost health insurance available for every child in the state. Nixon said the changes would restore Medicaid services cut three years ago, help bring down the cost of health insurance and medical care, and bring back $700 million in federal funds to Missouri each year. Critics of the plan suggest that the state cannot afford the estimated $265 million needed to generate the federal matching money.
