CLINTON, Mo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Recently, the Healthcare for Missouri Medicaid Ambulance Response Vehicle (MARV) stopped by Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare (GVMH) as part of its statewide efforts to increase awareness for the upcoming vote on the Medicaid expansion initiative that will appear on the ballot in the August 4, 2020 primary election.
If passed, Medicaid expansion would provide 230,000 Missourians access to healthcare so they can get preventative care and avoid emergency department visits as a main source for treatment. Support for the issue will improve Missouri’s health outcomes, bring tax dollars to the state and strengthen the economy.
“Access to healthcare is more important now than ever,” said Craig Thompson, CEO at GVMH. “Passing Amendment 2 for Medicaid expansion is one of the best things we can do to support our families, friends and neighbors, safeguard jobs for healthcare workers and keep rural Missouri hospitals open.”
