Computer System $46 Million Over Budget

KSAL StaffDecember 21, 2015

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A recent legislative audit has found that a new computer system designed to make it easier for Kansas residents to apply for Medicaid and other social services is more than two years past due and at least $46 million over budget.

The Legislative Post Audit says the Kansas Eligibility Enforcement System won’t perform as originally intended when it goes fully online, or produce the projected savings in operational costs.

The system was designed to allow people to fill out a single application that would be used to determine eligibility for Medicaid, food stamps, cash assistance and other social services.

Auditors say the project ran into several issues, including complex coordination between federal and state agencies.
