The WSU Hugo Wall School of Urban and Public Affairs is holding a Medicaid policy summit Thursday to discuss potential changes to the program that provides medical services to poor, disabled and elderly citizens.
The summit will be held in the ballroom on the third floor of the Wichita State Rhatigan Student Center from 2-5 p.m.
Medicaid is a central policy concern for the state of Kansas, with a nearly $3 billion budget.
We’re in the throes of a kind of “March madness” that most likely will not be going away come April. It is a sort of madness that has a much more profound impact any than basketball game could ever have.
I’m talking about the kind of madness that could leave thousands of Kansas Medicaid recipients stuck in that crazy-making, Alice-in-Wonderland place of having to deal with for-profit companies who will make decisions about those folks’ health care.
