Kansas Mental Health Panel Contemplating Expanded Medicaid

KSAL StaffJuly 17, 2015

A committee appointed by Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration to study Kansas’ behavioral health system is tentatively recommending that the state explore expanding Medicaid.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that idea flies in the face of the governor’s resistance to expansion unless several conditions are met.

The Adult Continuum of Care Committee hashed out recommendations Thursday that will go into its final report. Behavioral health services commissioner Bill Rein urged the panel to focus on short-term recommendations that can be implemented by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services without additional legislation.

The panel is comprised largely of mental health professionals from within and outside state government, law enforcement and the judiciary.
