Datapoint: Kansas Plots Medicaid Expansion

Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly (D) on Dec. 14 unveiled the Cutting Healthcare Costs for All Kansas Act, which would expand Medicaid to individuals whose incomes are up to 138% of the federal poverty level. The proposal, however, comes with a requirement that individuals must submit proof of work or community engagement when applying for coverage and again when the coverage renews a year later. Although states pay 10% of the costs to expand Medicaid, Kelly noted that the state would not bear any of the additional costs and that the state would instead cover its share via drug rebates, a hospital fee and other means. If approved, the expansion would go into effect on Jan. 1, 2025. Kansas currently serves 485,029 Medicaid beneficiaries, with 92.7% enrolled in managed care plans.
