The state’s KanCare program provides health coverage to approximately 400,000 Kansans, including children, low-income parents, and Kansans with disabilities. Ensuring Kansans – especially our most vulnerable – have access to health care means a better Kansas for everyone.
Due to COVID-19, KanCare had been operating under special rules, including suspension of the prior annual renewal process, during the public health emergency declaration. Upon this expiration, Kansas resumed the practice of annual renewals as of Spring this year. However, challenges including potentially outdated address information and the sudden increase in renewal volume are already leading to confusion and unnecessary coverage disenrollments.
The success of this process, and ensuring Kansans don’t unnecessarily lose coverage, is dependent on clear communication between KanCare and its enrollees. Fortunately, there are steps we can take to avoid coverage loss. This includes working with partner organizations to spread the word and doing all we can to help enrollees understand and navigate the process.
In order to provide the best information possible to our partners we, along with Community Care Network of Kansas, are hosting a series of webinars covering the process of these renewals and how best to navigate it.
