Datapoint: Kansas Reintroduces Medicaid Expansion Legislation

Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly (D) introduced new legislation supporting Medicaid expansion, according to a Feb. 7 press release from her office. Gov. Kelly is a strong supporter of Medicaid expansion, though previous efforts to pass expansion legislation have failed for three years running. About 150,000 people would become eligible for Medicaid if the effort passes, according to state documents. The state’s existing managed Medicaid program, KanCare, currently serves 490,792 people, with an additional 33,296 lives covered under fee-for-service.
