Sebelius Awards $31 Million Reform Grant to Kansas

Kansas has been awarded a $31 million grant to develop the information systems it will need to operate a health insurance purchasing exchange. Establishment of the exchange is a requirement for compliance with the federal health reform law. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius made the announcement today (WED). Linda Sheppard of the Kansas Insurance Department says the state got the so-called “early innovator” grant because of work already being done to modernize the Medicaid eligibility system. That system will be adapted to also operate the Web-based purchasing exchange.

Beginning in 2014, millions of Americans will be able to purchase health insurance through state-based exchanges. Many will be eligible for federal subsidies.
