Kansas must close the coverage gap and make sure that all Kansans have access to healthcare. The Medicaid rate was finally increased in 2019, but it was only increased to where the state was ten years ago. If our lawmakers fail to listen to us during the 2020 legislative session, I will be an advocate for KanCare Expansion when I take office in 2021.
We need lawmakers who will make sure that we utilize the services that the Federal Government offers such as the Excellence in Mental Health Centers Act. Kansas currently receives zero dollars, because we chose not to participate. We are missing out on federal dollars for healthcare that should be used right here in Kansas. Help me bring those dollars back to the Sunflower State.
