Public Notice

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Division of Health Care Finance (KDHE-DHCF), requests approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to amend the 1115 Demonstration waiver, KanCare, in order to adopt twelve-month continuous eligibility for parents and other caretaker adults. Since this amendment would allow parents and other caretaker adults to remain eligible for a longer period, KDHE-DHCF believes that there will be a favorable impact on beneficiaries.

The proposed effective date of the amendment is January 1, 2022.
