Physician input needed: KanCare survey
KanCare, the state’s managed care Medicaid program, administered by three private insurance companies (Amerigroup of Kansas, Sunflower Health Plan, and UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Kansas) is approaching its five-year renewal review with CMS. The Kansas Medical Society in collaboration with the Kansas Hospital Association and the Kansas Association of Medically Underserved are performing an external assessment of the KanCare program in order to:
- Measure provider impressions about KanCare’s performance relative to the program’s intent, which included improved patient care outcomes and lower cost.
- Gather provider feedback on adjustment to KanCare that could be considered during the upcoming renewal review with CMS.
As a practicing physicians your experiences with and feedback regarding KanCare is extremely valuable. We solicit your perspective on KanCare in this short, completely anonymous survey. We will be collecting responses until September 22, 2016. You can access the survey through this link:
