KanCare moves forward before Fed approves it

Despite the fact that the federal government has not approved requests to waive a number regulations that would thwart it, Kansas is moving ahead with its KanCare Medicaid overhaul

Despite the fact that the federal government has not approved requests to waive a number regulations that would thwart it, Kansas is moving ahead with its KanCare Medicaid overhaul.

According to the Associated Press (AP), Gov. Sam Brownback plans to turn Medicaid over to three private, managed-care companies starting Jan. 1 after awarding contracts this summer.

But because the federal government provides a majority of the funding for the state's $2.9 billion-a-year program, it must approve multiple waivers Kansas has requested. The state administration is confident the waivers will be approved because the federal government has approved them for other states. Kansas expects approval in August, but AP quotes a federal spokesman who says there is no formal timetable for making a decision.

Kansas submitted its requests a day before new rules for waiver applications took effect. The new rules require two public hearings, public notifications and a report on public comments before submitting an application.
