Healthcare in Kansas

In the summer of 2011, the State of Kansas facilitated a series of Medicaid Public Forums where more than 1,000 participants engaged in discussions on how to reform Kansas’ Medicaid system. Forum participants from Topeka, Wichita and Dodge City produced over 1,500 comments and recommendations for reform. Recommendations were focused on the three segments of the Medicaid population:
• Children, Families and Pregnant Women,
• The Aged
• The Disabled
