KanCare Forums Scheduled for November 14-20

Public forums regarding KanCare 2.0 are scheduled November 14-20, 2017 in Topeka, Olathe, Dodge City, Great Bend, Pittsburg, and Wichita. Plan to participate in a meeting near you or on one of the two conference calls.

The hearings will offer Kansas providers and consumers the opportunity to share input about the plan to renew the KanCare managed care program.
 
When KanCare began in 2013, a value-added preventive dental benefit was offered to all adults enrolled in KanCare. Now, it is time to provide feedback about that benefit and what you would like to see in KanCare 2.0.

The state's Medicaid program must be approved by the federal government before introduced to low-income elderly people, individuals with disabilities and children in poor families on January 1, 2019.

S corporations pass corporate income, losses, deductions and credits through to their shareholders for federal tax purposes, according to the Internal Revenue Service. This enables shareholders to be taxed at their individual income tax rates and to avoid double taxation on the corporate income.
