Choosing a KanCare Health Plan

Member Open Enrollment

You will receive your open enrollment packet 30 days before your one-year KanCare anniversary. If you were added to someone's existing KanCare case, you will be eligible for open enrollment the same time as your family's case. After you receive your open enrollment packet, you will have until 60 days past your KanCare anniversary date to make changes to your KanCare health plan.

Open enrollment means you can change your plan if you want to be covered by a different plan, or you can keep your same health plan. If you are happy with your current health plan, you do not need to do anything at all. Again, if you do not want to change health plans, you will automatically be re-enrolled in your same plan. But if you want to change your health plan, you will need to let us know by following the instructions in the packet mailed to you on the anniversary date of when you joined KanCare.

All members will have 60 days to review their open enrollment packet and decide whether or not they want to stay in their plan or change to a different plan.

Current members can download an Open Enrollment packet below.

KDHE is extending the due date for KanCare members’ eligibility reviews to January 10, 2018 because of the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. KanCare members whose eligibility is up for review will need to submit their review materials/documentation by January 10, 2017. The original due date was January 1, 2017.
