KanCare 2017 Extension

Kansas requests a one year extension to its KanCare demonstration with no changes. KanCare provides statewide managed care to the majority of Medicaid state plan populations for physical, behavioral, and long term care services. KanCare operates concurrently with the state's section 1915(c) Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waivers and together provides the authority necessary to require enrollment of almost all Medicaid beneficiaries (including the aged, disabled, and some dual eligibles) into a managed care delivery system to receive state plan and HCBS waiver services. KanCare also includes a safety net care pool to support certain hospitals that incur uncompensated care costs for Medicaid beneficiaries and the uninsured, and to provide incentives to hospitals for programs to enhance access to health care and improve the quality of care. The federal public comment period will be open from August 11, 2017 to September 10, 2017.
