Missouri won a federal award yesterday to expand home health services for Medicaid recipients, an announcement that will ease demands on state tax revenue in the budget year that begins July 1. When state lawmakers wrote the $24 billion spending plan for next year, they counted on the award announced yesterday, which will mean as much as $100.9 million to the state over the next three years.
