At a meeting in Topeka today, the National Council on Disability will hear how the state’s managed care program for Medicaid has been working. The state privatized the health care system, now known as KanCare, several years ago. As KPR’s Stephen Koranda reports, the council advises the president, Congress and the federal government on disability issues.
The National Council on Disability held a similar meeting in 2013 in Kansas, which helped produce a series of recommendations for managed care programs. Now, they’re working to update the report.
