Dr. Bob Moser, Secretary for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, gave a presentation today to tribal leaders and health care administrators from the four tribes about the proposed KanCare program that the state is planning to implement in place of the federal Affordable Care Act program. Moser's presentation was geared specifically to tribal interests.
Tribal leaders asked several questions during the presentation regarding what effect the plan will have on them and their providers.
