(Cole County) The Missouri Supreme Court has ruled unanimously that a Medicaid expansion ballot measure is constitutional. The high court has sent the case back to Cole County court to rule in favor of three low-income women who sued the State in an effort to gain Medicaid coverage. The case went to court after the Republican-controlled Missouri Legislature chose to defund Medicaid expansion back in the spring. Their argument was the ballot measure did not include a funding source. The measure will allow another 275-thousand low-income Missouri adults to be able to afford some type of healthcare coverage.
