The Missouri Prosthetic Parity Bill (HB 616) passed out of the House Health Care Policy Committee unanimously (10-0) on April 1st

It's not an April fools joke either! Amazing that these bills are consistently passing unanimously, isn't it? This bodes well for the federal bills. So, ironically, Missouri is about to make it illegal to deny coverage for prosthetics. I live in Missouri, but I work for Kansas, so I'm still stuck. But, wonderful news for amputees in Missouri that have been doing without for so long!
