Kansas Senate Majority Leader Jim Denning has offered an important plan to expand Medicaid coverage in the state. A Senate committee endorsed it last week.
Conservative Republicans dont like it. The fact were trying to expand it as Republicans is unfortunate, said state Sen. Ty Masterson, a Republican from Andover.
Gov. Laura Kelly, a Democrat who says expanding Medicaid is her top priority, is also a skeptic. We need a Medicaid expansion plan that is simple, effective and sustainable for Kansas, she said in a statement.
