Kansas Legislators to Discuss Health Care Programs

KSAL StaffNovember 25, 2013

A legislative oversight committee is scheduled to receive a status report on changes made to the Kansas Medicaid program and services for the developmentally disabled.

Monday’s meeting will look at issues related to the state’s KanCare system that began implementation in 2012 and took effect earlier this year. Kansas has contracted with three managed-care organizations to administer Medicaid programs for the elderly, poor and disabled.

Among those scheduled to appear are representatives from several developmentally disabled and community-based service providers.

Legislators also will receive an update on the state’s health insurance marketplace from the insurance commissioner’s office. Kansas elected not to establish a state-run exchange to implement the federal health care law and is using the federal exchange that was developed.
