Most Missourians support Medicaid expansion and believe the state government has a responsibility to ensure access to affordable health care, according to a new survey by the Missouri Foundation for Health.
What's particularly noteworthy about this survey is that a majority of the responders agreed this is a responsibility that must be met, even if it means raising taxes. 55 percent of responders say Missouri's state government must act to do so, while 34 percent say we can't afford it.
A recently released report shows there is a disparity in health care among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Missourians. The study by the Missouri Foundation for Health shows LGBT individuals have less access to health care and tend to be less healthy than the general population.
Reporting from Jacob McCleland of KRCU used in this report.
