What’s Going On In Kansas
Managed Care (KanCare): Kansas has a privately managed Medicaid program called KanCare. This program that allows three private insurance companies to administer their Medicaid program under a 5 year “waiver.” This 5 year waiver is set to end December 2017, but Kansas filed for an extension. Federal officials approved this request for an extension May 2017.
More agencies than ever are looking for affordable workforce management solutions to find ways to reduce administrative costs during the transition to managed care. Managed care will make life difficult for Chief Financial Officers and Chief Information Officers. CFOs and CIOs have to reduce costs, but their workforce may already be lean, and their budgets for productivity-improving IT investments may be shrinking. However, significant cost reductions can be achieved by deploying workforce management solutions that focus on labor costs and administrative overhead, typically an agency’s largest expense.
