Break the Cycle - Address the Problem of Missouri's Uninsured

Address Missouri's UninsuredMore than 45 percent of uninsured Missouri adults earn less than 138 percent of the federal poverty level — 74 percent belong to a working family. Uninsured adults are our friends and neighbors in small towns and cities throughout Missouri. They wait tables, care for the elderly, grow produce for farmer’s markets and care for our children and grandchildren. They also get sick and need access to medical care, as shown in maps for each Senate district prepared by MHA. Research has linked health insurance coverage to improved individual health, population health, workforce productivity and financial health.
