Gov. Agrees To Modify Medicaid Plan
04/26/2012

Amid pressure from advocates for the
developmentally disabled, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is going along
with a proposal to modify his plans for overhauling the $2.9
billion-a-year Medicaid program.
     Brownback announced Wednesday that his administration is
endorsing a proposal for a one-year exclusion of long-term services
for the developmentally disabled from the Medicaid reforms. Those
services wouldn't become part of the overhaul until 2014.
     House Majority Leader Arlen Siegfreid, an Olathe Republican
who's normally a Brownback ally, confirmed that he is pursuing the
proposal. His plan would allow pilot projects to test whether
private managed-care companies can provide adequate services.
     Brownback's administration plans to turn the management of
Medicaid over to three private companies, starting in 2013.
Medicaid covers medical services for the poor, needy and disabled.
