In January 2013, Medicaid and HealthWave will become KanCare. KanCare will improve the care that is provided to eligible Kansans and add new covered services, such as basic dental care. The Kansas Hospital Association is dedicated to assisting Kansas hospitals with the implementation of the KanCare program which is reinventing Medicaid for Kansas. If you have questions, contact Chad Austin or Tish Hollingsworth.
