Praeger Urges Defeat of Health Care Compact Bill

KSAL StaffFebruary 26, 2014

Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger says a state House bill aimed at allowing Kansas to opt out of the federal health care overhaul could jeopardize Medicare funding for seniors.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the bill would allow Kansas to join a compact of states to take control of health care policy within their borders. The measure is before the full House and is backed by the Kansas Chamber and Republican elected officials critical of the Affordable Care Act.

Praeger says the bill would place federal funding for all health care services and health plans under the control of the Kansas Legislature and governor. She says if state revenues then fall short, the funds for Medicare and other health programs could be used to support other state functions.
