Access to care plays a critical role in supporting Kansans’ health and strong communities. Particularly in rural areas where the population is growing older and more sparse, providers are looking for ways to both stay financially viable and provide quality integrated care for the people they serve.
Our Goal: Sustainable health care systems that ensure people have access to care
Alliance for a Healthy Kansas
More than 150,000 Kansans fall into a health coverage gap. They earn too much to qualify for KanCare but not enough to be eligible to get financial help to buy private insurance. These are hard working men and women who are left with few options for affordable health coverage. To close that gap, a diverse coalition of over 100 business, civic, and health care organizations from across the state have come together to form the Alliance for a Healthy Kansas and advocate to expand KanCare. The Alliance is collaborative effort supported by the Health Fund and our philanthropic partners in Kansas.
The Cover Kansas Coalition is a statewide group of community partners whose mission is to build awareness, facilitate enrollment, and promote health insurance literacy through collaboration, education, and engagement in an effort to reduce the rate of uninsured in Kansas. The Health Fund supports the work of Cover Kansas, and partners with them on increasing health insurance literacy in our state.
