CMS grants 1-year extension to Kansas' privatized Medicaid program

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services granted Kansas' privatized Medicaid program KanCare a one-year temporary extension through Dec. 31, 2018.

As a term of the temporary extension, Kansas must implement a corrective action plan that CMS approved in May. The state must also maintain the Safety Net Care Pool funding levels as specified in the special terms and conditions for an additional 12 months. CMS expects the state to submit its extension application by Dec. 31, detailing its proposals to improve Medicaid payment systems, funding mechanisms and the quality of healthcare services for the state's Medicaid beneficiaries.

CMS previously denied Kansas an extension in January after finding that the state "substantively" failed to comply with federal statutes and regulations and with its Medicaid State Plan.
