Kansas Gets $3M Federal Grant

KSAL StaffSeptember 24, 2013

Kansas has been awarded $3.1 million in federal grants under the Affordable Care Act.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and Kansas Department of Insurance say the money will be used to support the state’s efforts to review health insurance rate requests and provide data on different prices charged by health care providers.

The grants are part of $67.6 million awarded to 20 states, including Kansas.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports officials say the grant will help improve a database that collects non-personal information from most insurers about insurance policies they issue and claims they pay.

The state insurance agency says that’s expected to help in the rate review process.
