Gov. Matt Blunt’s proposal to rename Missouri’s Medicaid program as MO HealthNet and make other changes to the system would result in only about 10,000 additional people receiving health care coverage, the governor told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in a Jan. 26 story. Since Blunt took office in 2005 and signed legislation making it harder to qualify for Medicaid, there are 177,000 fewer people enrolled in the program.
