KanCare FAQs
How much does the State anticipate to save under the proposed KanCare program?
Over five years, the state expects to reduce growth in Kansas Medicaid spending by 8-10 percent.
This amounts to a one-third reduction in total Medicaid growth. Based on a conservative starting point of 6.6% growth in Medicaid without reforms (the actual growth rate over the past decade was 7.4%), KanCare is expected to achieve savings of $853 million (all funds) over the next five years.
