New Health Insurance Options: What’s here, what’s coming, and work left to do; Jen Bersdale, Executive Director, Missouri Health Care for All

Missourians now have new options for health insurance through the Missouri Health Insurance Marketplace.

Missouri also has a chance to expand health insurance even further for low-income Missourians. Ms Bersdale will speak about what the changes mean for individuals, families, and small businesses.
