State of Kansas KanCare 2.0 1115 Draft for Renewal

The 1115 draft is out for public comment.  Click here to read it.

Contact and comment info is available in the document.
Comments will be accepted until November 26, 2017.
The State intends to submit the renewal request no later than December 31, 2017

"The Kansas Department of Health & Environment (KDHE), in partnership with the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) is pleased to submit this Section 1115 demonstration renewal application for the KanCare program. KanCare, Kansas’ statewide mandatory Medicaid managed care program, was implemented on January 1, 2013 , under authority of a waiver through Section 1115 of the Social Security Act. The initial demonstration was approved for five years, and the Centers for Medicare and Medi caid Services (CMS) approved a one-year extension on October 13, 2017. The original goals of the KanCare demonstration focused on providing integrated and whole-person care, creating health homes, preserving or creating a path to independence, and establishing alternative access models with an emphasis on home and community-based services (HCBS). Building on the success of the current KanCare demonstration , the goal for KanCare 2.0 is to help Kansans achieve healthier, more independent lives by coordinating services and supports for social determinants of health and independence in addition to traditional Medicaid benefits. The State of Kansas (the State) seeks a five-year Section 1115 demonstration renewal from CMS to further improve health outcomes, coordinate care and social services, address social determinants of health, facilitate achievement of member independence, and advance fiscal responsibility."
