New KanCare Communications Tool Enhances
Member Notifications   

KanCare has launched a new communications tool to communicate more effectively with KanCare members. The tool allows KanCare to text, call and email members with notifications that a review has been sent, review reminders and reminders to update their contact information, and other important updates. Messages are sent to members who have opted in to receive texts, calls and email. Members can opt in through the Medical Consumer Self-Service Portal (SSP). Videos are available for instructions on signing up for the SSP

KDHE has selected three managed care organizations (MCOs) to serve the Kansas Medicaid program, known as KanCare, from January 1, 2025, to December 31, 2027: Sunflower Health Plan, United Healthcare Community Plan, and Healthy Blue. At this time, current KanCare members do not need to take any action.

Press Release


Attention KanCare Enrollees

KanCare renewals are coming. Make sure the KanCare Clearinghouse has your most current contact information. Click the red chat bubble in the lower right of your screen or call 1-800-792-4884 and give the Clearinghouse your updated address, phone number or any other contact information that has recently changed. Doing this will help the KanCare Clearinghouse contact you when your renewal is due and may help you avoid a gap in coverage.

More Medicaid renewal information and resources.

Sign up for the Kansas Medical Consumer Self-Service Portal and link your medical case to see your benefits, complete a renewal and report changes. You must link your medical case to your self-service account to use the portal. Requests to link medical cases to self-service accounts are reviewed by KanCare eligibility workers before being approved. 

For more instructions, watch the how-to videos or read instructions for the self-service portal (SSP). 

KanCare may be reaching out to you soon about your health coverage by text, phone call, email or mail. Following reports of fake texts and calls to Medicaid members in other states, KanCare reminds you that Kansas Medicaid will never charge you to enroll or reenroll in KanCare. KanCare will never threaten you or your family or ask for credit or debit card information. 

Scammers might pretend to be from a real organization or a government agency. They can use phone, text or email to try to steal money or something of value from you. 

If anyone claiming to be with KanCare contacts you and: 

  1. threatens you or your family, 
  2. asks for your credit or debit card information 
  3. warns of legal action, 
  4. demands or requests immediate payment, 
  5. requires payment by gift card, prepaid gift card, internet currency or by mailing cash, 
  6. pressures you for personal information
  7. requests secrecy, 
  8. threatens to seize your bank account, and/or
  9. tries to gain your trust by providing fake "documentation," false "evidence" or the name of a real government official, 

that person may be trying to scam you. Hang up, don't answer the text or email, and call 1-800-792-4884.
