Older Missourians are Losing Essential Services

It's become clear that older Missourians are under attack in Jefferson City.

First, the General Assembly cut prescription drug assistance for 64,000 older Missourians by cutting funding for the MO Rx Program.  Then, the Governor vetoed HCB 3, cutting another 8,000 older and disabled Missourians off of in-home and nursing home care.

Tell your legislators that you’ve had enough!  It’s time to restore these cuts before thousands of older Missourians find their health and financial security compromised.

Dear [Decision Maker],

Thousands of older and disabled Missourians are losing access to services they depend on to keep them healthy and in their communities.



I would urge you to override Governor Greitens' veto of House Committee Bill 3 and restore long term services to Missouri's most vulnerable citizens.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
