MISSOURI--- While the debate continues over whether to expand Missouri Medicaid, there will be some growth later this year. The 2015 state budget includes an additional $48 million. The goal is to restore dental benefits cut from the Medicaid program in 2005. It's estimated almost 300,000 patients will benefit from the change. The extra funding will also increase Medicaid reimbursements to dentists.
