JEFFERSON CITY — Several hundred people gathered at the Missouri Capitol to rally against possible changes in programs for the disabled.
Monday's event focused on several proposals to reduce the state's Medicaid costs.
One measure would require independent, third-party assessments of whether individuals qualify for home health care services, and how much care they should receive.
Critics say the changes could prevent some disabled people from receiving care.
Several Democratic lawmakers told those in the crowd that they can sway the Missouri General Assembly if they speak up.
