Diane, Greene County

Diane is an in-home aide worker with serious medical conditions. She is passionate about Medicaid Expansion because the Marketplace insurance plans are too expensive. Although she was finally able to get insurance, the cost of her coverage is extremely burdensome. If Missouri expands Medicaid, it would provide Diane with security and peace of mind that her health needs would be taken care of so that she could support her family. Diane would tell the legislators, “I need that security – just to know that it is there…I think it needs to be heard that some of us have fallen through the crack.”
