Missouri adds insult to Medicaid-cut injuries

Missouri is dropping some 90,000 people from Medicaid coverage, including anyone who makes more than $90 per month. One of them is my good friend Anne's sister. This woman has multiple sclerosis, and is frantically trying to figure out how she'll be able to stay on Avonex at $1,000 or so a month. The letter she got from the Missouri Dept. of Social Services contained an 800 number to call with questions. Turns out the number had a typo, and connected callers to a woman in Montana.
