AUDIO SOUND BITE: Bersdale Sees Good Cost-Benefit For Medicaid Expansion in MO

Should Missouri expand the Medicaid roles to cover hundreds of thousands of more people? The offer from Washington D-C is that the federal government would cover the entire cost of expansion for three years.

After that, the state would have to cover ten-percent of the cost of expansion. Missouri Health Care For All supports the proposal. On “Missouri Viewpoints”, Executive Director Jen Bersdale calls the extra cost a good deal.

Republicans dispute the claims that expansion would create jobs and says the long-term cost is unaffordable.
