St. Louis, MO – Missouri Governor Bob Holden plans to sign a measure today (Friday) that's meant to give the state's nursing homes more money.

It would increase Medicaid reimbursement rates for the state's 545 homes.

Nursing homes have for several years said the state's reimbursements to help pay for those on Medicaid don't cover the actual cost of providing care.
