Compass Health Network Supports Medicaid Expansion

Jefferson City, MO – (July 7, 2020) – Yesterday, the Healthcare for Missouri Medicaid Ambulance Response Vehicle (MARV) stopped by Compass Health Network as part of its statewide efforts to increase awareness for the upcoming vote on the Medicaid expansion initiative that will appear on the ballot in the August 4, 2020 primary election.

If passed, Medicaid expansion would give 230,000 Missourians access to healthcare so they can get preventative care and avoid the emergency department as their main source for medical treatment. Support for the issue will improve Missouri’s health outcomes, bring tax dollars to the state, and strengthen the economy.
