Pass the CARE Act!

Nearly 800,000 Missourians care for their aging or disabled loved ones at no cost to the State - a cost that would exceed $8 billion if their family members were on Medicaid.  

Senate Bill 991, sponsored by Sen. Scott Sifton (D-St. Louis County), would arm family caregivers with essential information and training when transitioning their loved ones home from the hospital.

Contact your state senator today and urge them to pass SB 991, the CARE Act.
