The current director of the Medicaid program in the Kansas Department of Health and Environment will become interim secretary of the state agency.
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback Thursday named Dr. Susan Mosier to replace Dr. Robert Moser, who plans to resign at the end of the month.
Mosier has been director of the Division of Health Care Finance since August and KDHE Medicaid Director since March 2012. She had previously owned Mosier Eye Care in Manhattan and served in the Kansas House from 2011 until she resigned in March 2012.
Moser has been health department secretary since January 2011. He announced on Tuesday that he planned to resign to pursue opportunities at the University of Kansas Hospital and University of Kansas Medical School.
