New KanCare MCOs Announced

May 20, 2024

On Thursday, May 16th, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment announced the new KanCare (Medicaid) managed care organizations (MCOs). They are United Healthcare Community Plan, Sunflower Health Plan, and Healthy Blue. United and Sunflower currently have KanCare contracts, but Healthy Blue is new. They are replacing Aetna Better Health of Kansas, which has had a managed care contract for the past six years.

The new managed care contracts with United, Sunflower, and Healthy Blue will begin January 1, 2025, and will run through December 31, 2027. Over the next six months, the state and the MCOs will prepare for the transition and the new contracts.

We are pleased to see dental care play a more prominent role in the new KanCare MCO contracts. Oral Health Kansas has worked closely with all of the MCOs, and we look forward to continuing that work and building a relationship with the newest MCO in 2025.
