Fantastic news! Two of Missouri Health Care for All’s top priorities – Rate Review and Raising Asset Limits – passed out of committee this morning.
Rate Review passed through the House Insurance Committee on Wednesday, April 13th- with unanimous support – and passed through the House Select Committee on Insurance the following morning – also with unanimous support. This paves the way for Rate Review to move to the House floor for a vote, and create health insurance rate review in Missouri, giving Missouri consumers the same transparency in health insurance enjoyed by citizens in every other U.S. state.

Raising Asset Limits passed through the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs and Health this morning – with unanimous support. HB1565 passed the House with overwhelming support in late February. This bill will raise Missouri’s dismally low asset limits so that people with disabilities can save for basic expenses like home and car repairs without losing their Medicaid coverage. HB1565 will now move to the Senate floor for a vote.
