KanCare Updates

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.

COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS AND STAKEHOLDER GROUPS:

Help the KanCare enrollees in your community prepare for the Continuous Enrollment Unwinding by accessing the communications toolkit below and using the materials included to educate KanCare enrollees. You can use the materials as they are or edit to fit your platform. If you edit, please contact Lauren Evans for review.

The toolkit is divided into two phases. Phase 1 materials can be deployed immediately. We recommend Phase 2 be deployed once renewal mailings begin around March 13.

Check back every Wednesday to see new materials as they become available.

Broadband for All Through the Affordable Connectivity Program

KanCare beneficiaries and those who receive SNAP, SSI, WIC, a Pell Grant, Free and Reduced-Price Lunch, or Lifeline benefits or make less than 200% of the federal poverty are prequalified for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The ACP gives eligible households discounts of up to $30 off monthly internet bills or up to $75 off for households on qualifying tribal lands. Eligible enrollees can also get $100 to use for a tablet, laptop or desktop computer through a partnering service provider when they spend more than $10 and less than $50. Visit AffordableConnectivity.gov to apply.

Check Your Tax Credit Eligibility

If you worked, earned less than $59,187 and had less than $10,300 in investment income during tax year 2022 you may qualify for a reduction in taxes you owe or an increase in your tax refund. You may even qualify for Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for as far back as 2018. See if you qualify for EITC at irs.gov/eitc

COVID-19 Resources

Covid-19 Public Health Emergency 

During the federal COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE), KanCare recipients have stayed enrolled in the program.

If your contact information or household circumstances have changed, please update your information by contacting the KanCare Clearinghouse at 1-800-792-4884. You can also update your contact information by clicking the red chat bubble to the lower right of your screen.

This may help you keep your KanCare coverage after the end of the COVID-19 PHE.

DSNPs enroll individuals who are entitled to both Medicare and medical assistance from a state plan under Medicaid. The State exempts the following D-SNPs from external quality review per 42 C.F.R. 438.362 beginning in 2019:
