 - Kansas Medicaid officials are preparing for a new phase of KanCare that will target services to the seriously mentally ill.

They will be using a “health home” model that appears to be producing good undefined though preliminary undefined results in other states and which will allow Kansas to draw additional federal aid dollars as part of the Affordable Care Act.

Among the goals of federal and state officials in using the model is to reduce emergency room visits and hospital readmissions among Medicaid enrollees.   Read KHI Article.
