Rural Missourians face unique healthcare challenges such as a larger aging population, lower incomes, higher incidence of chronic illnesses, less access to employer-sponsored insurance and barriers to healthcare access due to geographic distance and hospital closures. Even healthy, working citizens find themselves caught in the coverage gap and unable to afford private insurance. Throughout the entire state, Medicaid expansion is a matter of access, affordability, quality of life and health equity.
