Health care in Missouri currently faces serious threats and tremendous opportunities. Funds raised through this event will support the work to inform and mobilize Missourians about the issues and provide them opportunities to have an impact on policy outcomes. Current policy priorities include stopping the Medicaid Purge that has stripped more than 100,000 Missouri children of their health insurance; expanding Medicaid; and protecting Missourians from surprise out-of-network medical bills.
Missouri Health Care for All has a proven approach that has repeatedly led to the passage of consumer-friendly health policy and the blockage of policies that would rob Missourians of their health care.
Missouri Health Care for All is an independent organization that receives no government funding and does not provide or sell health care services. We do not benefit financially from the policies we champion. We rely on support from individual, foundation, and corporate partners to sustain our important mission.
