Missouri expands health services for low-income women

St. Louis Business Journal, January 9, 2009

Missouri has expanded a program that provides women's health services to low-income, uninsured women. State-funded medical services, including cancer screenings, family planning services, and pelvic exams, are now available to women ages 18 to 55 with income up to $32,568 annually for a family of three. Until now, the women's health program was available only to uninsured women for a year following the birth of a child. As many as 83,000 additional women could be eligible for the health services under the expanded program.
