Task force created by Gov. Colyer recommends Medicaid expansion

News

A task force created by Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer recommends expanding Medicaid.

Earlier this year, the state legislature approved expanding eligibility for Medicaid. However, former Governor Sam Brownback vetoed the measure. Current Governor Jeff Colyer has continued to oppose Medicaid expansion.

The task force is recommending the program expanded to include 150 thousand Kansans who don’t have insurance.
