A public forum espousing the expansion of KanCare — the name Kansas has given the federally funded Medicaid program to cover health care costs for low-income Kansans — will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at Allen County Regional Hospital.
The forum is hosted by the Alliance for a Healthy Kansas, a network of health care advocates, business leaders, doctors and hosptials, social service organizations, faith-based communities and others in the state.
The group’s aim is to expand KanCare to cover additional residents, providing insurance to as many as 150,000 socially distressed residents.
