Mark is one of many who are now eligible to apply for MO HealthNet Medicaid insurance. Everyone deserves access to quality healthcare and resources that enable them to get the medical attention they need. In August of 2020 the ballot issue for Medicaid Expansion that increased the income eligible amount of adults was approved by voters. This means that approximately 200,000+ more adults could be eligible for coverage.

I’ve been a blue-collar worker all my life. Plus, my income has suffered since the pandemic of 2020. I understand I’m eligible now for Medicaid insurance under this expansion. I have some serious health issues. This is coming at a great time because I need surgery on both of my shoulders and right knee. I’m not good at filling out applications like this. I’m so thankful there are places like Samuel Rodgers with staff to help people like me get through the Medicaid application process. Now I don’t have to worry about my health as much.”
