N.S., St. Louis

N.S. is 46 years old and lives in St. Louis. She has high blood pressure but cannot afford her medication, because she is uninsured. Without her medication, she gets ill frequently. If she could get insurance, N.S. would be able to access medication and would thus get sick less often. N.S. believes that if Missouri would expand Medicaid, it would help her to be healthier and happier and enable her to do more with her family.
