Final Medicaid Forum Scheduled for Wednesday

The fourth and final public meeting on Governor Sam Brownback’s Medicaid reform initiative is scheduled for tomorrow (WED) in Overland Park. State Health Secretary Robert Moser says the goal is to slow the rate of growth in the health care program for low-income and disabled Kansans. He says they're hoping to reduce Medicaid’s costs by about $200 million over two years, getting about half that in the first year.

Moser says improving the care provided to more than 300,000 Kansans on Medicaid is just as important as cutting costs. Critics say such deep cuts are more likely to reduce services. The meeting is scheduled from 1 to 5pm tomorrow (WED) at the Overland Park Convention Center. Those interested in attending are asked to make reservations on KDHE’s website(
