A recent report credits the federal Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, for helping to reduce the racial and ethnic inequalities in health insurance coverage. But Kansas has not made as much progress as other states. Heartland Health Monitor’s Bryan Thompson investigates why—and what can be done about it.

Editor’s note: Bryan Thompson is a reporter for the KHI News Service. The Kansas Health Institute, mentioned in this report, is the parent organization of the editorially independent KHI News Service.

Heartland Health Monitor is a reporting collaboration focused on health issues and their impact in Kansas and Missouri. The partners — Kansas Public Radio, KCUR Public Radio, KCPT Public Television and KHI News Service — strive to bring listeners and readers timely, accurate and comprehensive coverage of health and health-related issues.
