Where Missouri stands after health care law ruling
Here is a look at where Missouri stands on implementing President Barack Obama's federal health care overhaul, which the Supreme Court ruled Thursday can go forward:
NUMBER OF UNINSURED: 835,000 state residents are uninsured, or about 14 percent.
WHERE THE STATE STANDS: Missouri received an initial planning grant but has not implemented an online health insurance exchange, a cornerstone of the federal law, because of opposition to it by some Republican state senators. Missouri residents will vote in November on a ballot measure asking whether Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon's administration should be barred from implementing an insurance exchange without specific authority in state law.
