Nixon calls for expansion of Medicaid in Missouri

Gov. Jay Nixon is calling on lawmakers to expand the public health insurance program for the poor to include an estimated 300,000 additional Missourians. The expansion of Medicaid is part of the federal health care law, known as the Affordable Care Act, and is designed to provide coverage to millions of low-income residents who can’t afford insurance.
