The Kansas and Missouri Medicaid programs currently offer no coverage to childless adults and very low income eligibility limits for parents. Absent Medicaid expansion, the coverage system in both Missouri and Kansas has a large coverage gap that leaves hundreds of thousands of residents behind, because they make too much money to qualify for the current Medicaid program and too little for a subsidized marketplace plan. More than 250,000 residents of the Kansas City region are currently uninsured. Medicaid expansion stands to bring $325 million into the HCF service area each year to provide health care to those who were previously uninsured.
