Nixon reauthorizes tax that funds Missouri Medicaid services

( KTRS ) A Missouri tax on medical service providers that helps fund the state Medicaid program has been reauthorized by the governor.

Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon has signed legislation to continue the tax for another year. The measure extends taxes on medical providers including hospitals, nursing homes and ambulances.

The revenue brings in roughly $3.6 billion for health care through the state’s Medicaid services, a significant chunk of the program’s funding.

The tax would have expired in September if lawmakers took no action.
