Missouri seniors, the blind and those with disabilities will be able to save more but still qualify for Medicaid health care under a new law. Governor Jay Nixon signed the legislation Thursday. The current limit is $1,000 in assets for an individual and $2,000 for married couples. That will double when the expansion takes effect in July 2017 and will continue to increase yearly. When fully implemented in 2021, individuals can keep $5,000 and married couples can save up to $10,000. The legislation does not include a broad Medicaid eligibility expansion sought by Democrats.
