Missouri healthcare enrollment numbers climb

Tuesday, 11 March 2014 16:45 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The number of Missouri residents using a federal website to enroll in health insurance is growing, but not as fast as had been projected.
 
Figures released Tuesday show nearly 75,000 people had enrolled in health policies by March 1. That's up by more than one-third from the Feb. 1.
 
Yet Missouri remains behind the enrollment targets originally set for federal health care law. The March 1 number is about where Missouri was expected to be on Feb. 1.
 
Missouri was projected to enroll 118,000 people by March 31.
 
Missouri is one of 36 states where the online insurance marketplace is being run by the federal government.
 
Health care advocates intensified their efforts over this past weekend to persuade people to sign up for the insurance policies.
 
JEFFERSON CITY, MO (AP) – A Missouri Senate panel has scaled back the amount of state money that could go to an unaccredited school district in the St. Louis area.
 
The Normandy School District had sought $5 million to make sure it can finish the academic year without becoming insolvent. The House approved that amount.
 
But the Senate Appropriations Committee on Tuesday reduced the supplemental state aid to $1.5 million. Committee Chairman Kurt Schaefer says that still should provide a financial cushion for the district.
Normandy’s financial problems stem in part from a Missouri law requiring unaccredited districts to pay transportation and tuition for students to transfer to accredited schools nearby.
 
The state education department has projected Normandy could finish the year with about $63,000, which wouldn’t leave much room for unexpected costs.
 
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) - The Malaysian military says it has radar evidence showing the missing Boeing 777 jetliner changed course and made it to the Malacca Strait, hundreds of kilometers (miles) away from the last location reported by civilian authorities.
 
The development injects new mystery into the investigation of the flight's disappearance.
 
Local newspaper Berita Harian quoted Malaysian air force chief Gen. Rodzali Daud as saying radar at a military base had detected the airliner near Pulau Perak, at the northern approach to the strait.
 
A high-ranking military official involved in the investigation confirmed the report on Tuesday and also said the aircraft was believed to be flying low.
 
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information.
