Missouri resident releases video about healthcare coverage gap

Although millions of Americans have gained health coverage under the Affordable Care Act, many people are still uninsured because they fall into a coverage gap.

Legal residents with incomes of up to four times the poverty level are eligible for Medicaid coverage in states implementing Medicaid expansion under the ACA. However, in nonexpansion states, many adults below the poverty level fall into a coverage gap.

Missouri resident Tom Rowley addresses this issue in a new comedy music video called "The Healthcare Blues."

The video, which lasts approximately five minutes, is about the healthcare coverage gap in Missouri, as well as other states that have not expanded Medicaid.  

He said the video was a no budget, no profit venture that friends helped him with, and he is trying to spread the video far and wide.

"I feel that closing the coverage gap will be a real win for my state (and the nation). I see this as a non-partisan issue. But I want this as an issue, to be on the voters minds as they go to the polls," Mr. Rowley said.
