Dr. Echols PSA: Thank You For Voting YES on Amendment 2
Dr. Fredrick Echols, Acting Director, for the Department of Health for the City of St. Louis, thanks citizens who voted to pass Missouri Constitutional Amendment 2, Medicaid Expansion.
Under the Amendment the following changes will occur:
-Expanding Medicaid eligibility in Missouri to adults that are 19 years old or older and younger than 65 whose income is 133% of the federal poverty level or below, which would effectively expand Medicaid to those with incomes at or below 138% of the federal poverty level under the Affordable Care Act;
-Prohibiting any additional restrictions or requirements for the expanded population to qualify for Medicaid coverage than for other populations that qualify for Medicaid coverage; and
-Requiring the state to seek maximum federal funding of Medicaid expansion.
Thank you for voting from the Department of Health.
