Questions remain surrounding the proposed Medicaid cuts that not even the Governor's office can answer. Here's Ian Roth at the State Capitol with more.
Although Stephanie Edwards works as a rehabilitation techinician at Forest Park Hospital in St. Louis, she lives below the national poverty line. But if Governor Blunt's proposed cutbacks on Medicaid pass, Edwards says her $14,000 a year salary will no longer qualify her for Medicaid benefits. This idea has left her questioning how she will pay for healthcare for her fifteen-year-old diabetic son.
Governor Blunt spokesperson, Terry Durdaller, said the governor's office is still trying to work out all the details of the Medicaid cuts.
From Jefferson City, I'm Ian Roth.
