TRENTON, Mo. — Gov. Jay Nixon visited Wright Memorial Hospital on Friday to voice his support for Medicaid, MO HealthNet, expansion.

The change in the federal insurance program for the low-income and disabled population is slated to take effect Jan. 1, 2014, as part of the Affordable Care Act. The law recommends states expand their Medicaid program to include ages 65 and under who are at least at 138 percent of the Federal Poverty Level.
