JEFFERSON CITY - Missouri's hospitals and medical professionals are launching a campaign to expand Medicaid coverage, citing a new study that estimates an expansion could lead to 24,000 new jobs across the state.

The study was released Wednesday by the Missouri Hospital Association and the Missouri Foundation for Health. It assumes an additional 161,000 people would enroll in Medicaid if eligibility is expanded to adults earning up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level.

Under a Supreme Court ruling earlier this year, each state can decide whether to enact the Medicaid expansion called for President Barack Obama's health care law. The federal government would pay the full cost of the expansion starting in 2014, but states would begin paying a share in 2017.
