An American Imperative
Universal health coverage - All Missourians should have access to necessary preventive, curative, rehabilitative and palliative health services as needed, while ensuring that no one is exposed to financial ruin.
Principles of Understanding:
1. Healthcare responds, like other markets, to economic principles/realities.
2. Community assistance requires personal responsibility.
3. Missourians have the Right of association - No plan, policy or goal is good enough to require forced participation.
