Disability Advocates Press Federal Officials To Get Kansas To Fix Medicaid Backlog

Kansas Health Institute:
In Kansas’ Richest County, Medicaid Expansion’s Absence Still Felt

The [Alliance fora Healthy Kansas] estimates that Medicaid expansion would extend health coverage to about 150,000 low-income Kansans…The alliance estimates that almost 40,000 Johnson County residents are uninsured and more than 25 percent of them would gain coverage through Medicaid expansion. Expanding eligibility for Medicaid also would bring about $44 million a year into the county’s health care economy, creating an estimated 282 jobs. (Marso, 7/12)
