Help the Low-Income Uninsured Gain Health Care Coverage Through Medicaid Expansion

The Kansas City Medical Society and the Kansas City Medical Society Foundation support Medicaid expansion in Kansas and Missouri.


As of October 1, Missouri is now processing applications from individual adults who are newly eligible for Medicaid under the expansion guidelines. See these informative FAQs from the Missouri Department of Social Services to help with enrollment and benefit-related questions you and your patients may have.



Medicaid enrollment assistance is available through Cover Missouri at the following Kansas City locations:

  • KC Care Health Center, 3515 Broadway 64111 or 2340 E. Meyer Blvd. 64132, 816-753-5144, ext. 1380

  • Homeroom Health, 1106 E. 30th St. 64109, 816-753-5144, ext. 1380


There was no action on Medicaid expansion in the 2021 legislature. Watch for announcement of advocacy plans for 2022.
