Judge Rules For Medicaid Coverage

A Missouri judge has ruled that Governor Parson no longer can deny Medicaid health care to thousands of eligible adults.

Cole County Judge Jon Beetem said in his order that Parson’s administration must give Medicaid coverage to newly eligible adults.

Missouri voters last year approved a state constitutional amendment expanding access to the government health care program to more low-income adults, but Governor Parson had refused to implement it because the GOP-led Legislature didn’t set aside money for it.
