Kansas Struggles To Get Medicaid Managed-Care Overhaul in Place

The state still awaits federal sign-off


Kansas Medicaid experts are still working out details of the state's new  health plan, which is supposed to be up and running by January, the state's lieutenant governor said Wednesday.

Kansas wants to start the radically overhauled Medicaid plan Jan. 1, giving day-to-day administration of the $3 billion program to three health-care management insurance companies hired in June to run KanCare.
