House Committee Continues Work On Medicaid Expansion In Missouri

CREATED Oct. 17, 2013

(Missourinet) -  A house committee working to create a plan for Missouri to expand and reform medicaid spent much of their latest hearing talking about mental health.

The committee says the state can save money if more people can be kept out of prison by increasing coverage for mental health and substance abuse.

The committee is working on a draft proposal that it hopes to have ready before lawmakers return to Jefferson City in January.
