KanCare FAQs
How will KanCare result in cost savings without provider cuts or cuts in services?
According to the State, savings in Kansas will be achieved by reducing the number of people who are being kept in institutional settings unnecessarily, by decreasing repeated hospitalizations, by better managing chronic conditions and by coordinating each individual's overall care.
KanCare companies will be rewarded for paying for preventative care that keeps people healthy, so they don't get so ill that they need very expensive services. Over time this will help slow to slow the fast-rising costs of the Medicaid system and ensure it continues to function effectively for those who need it.
