Topeka, Ks - The KanCare program will be hosting educational meetings for members in 16 cities across Kansas this week, starting today (mon.) in Dodge City, Manhattan, Winfield and Topeka. This is the first educational tour since KanCare launched on January 1. While previous tours focused on what Medicaid consumers would need to know about KanCare starting in 2013, this round of meetings will be dedicated to helping members with questions they have regarding the ongoing transition, including the 90-day choice period for health plan coverage.
Sessions in Southeast Kansas are scheduled in Parsons Tuesday in the Betty Anderson Room at the Parsons Recreation Center, 200 S Heacock and Wednesday at the Fort Scott Community College Ellis Fine Arts Center, Meeting Rooms, 2108 S. Horton. An educational meeting will be held in Hays Thursday at the Ramada Inn, 3603 Vine Street. Two meetings are being held on the same day in each city. Afternoon meetings will start at 1:00 p.m. and end at 3:00. Evening meetings will start at 6:00 p.m. and end at 8:00. More details can be found on line at www.kancare.ks.gov/events.htm.
