Democratic Party Chair Concerned About Medicaid Cuts

The head of the state Democratic Party wants Kansans to scrutinize Governor Sam Brownback’s plan for transforming Medicaid. Joan Wagnon says Brownback voted several times as a U-S Senator to cut Medicaid funding. And she’s concerned that his administration’s efforts to cut at least $200 million from the Kansas program will force the reduction or elimination of critical services.

Wagnon, a former legislator and cabinet secretary, attended a public forum yesterday (WED) on the Medicaid transformation initiative.
The meeting was led by several members of Brownback’s cabinet who say that cutting costs isn’t their only objective. They say they also want to improve services and outcomes for the more than 300,000 low-income, elderly and disabled Kansans enrolled in Medicaid.
