Missouri: State Requests Extension of Medicaid Waiver Covering St. Louis Adults

The State Department of Social Services requested to extend its "Gateway to Better Health" 1115 waiver program, which provides limited Medicaid coverage to uninsured adults in the St. Louis area with incomes under 100% of the federal poverty level. The program, which is set to expire on December 31, 2015, would be extended until December 31, 2016, or until Missouri's Medicaid eligibility is expanded to include the waiver population.
