The Missouri Hospital Association (MHA) released this week a report that illustrates the equivalent value of the $2 billion in federal dollars that will not come to Missouri in 2014 because of the inaction by the Missouri General Assembly in 2013 to reform Medicaid.

The impact of these dollars not being received by Missouri are pretty amazing."
