Because we are still in consultation regarding a number of outstanding issues, CMS and the State of Kansas have agreed to extend the state’s submission dates for the Developmental Disability (DD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Physical Disability, (PD) and Frail Elderly (FE) waivers. This additional time will allow us to reach resolution on the matters that remain to be resolved, including the waiver transition plans for compliance with the HCBS final settings rule.
Attention: KanCare Providers
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Division of Health Care Finance, is conducting the next in a planned series of provider experience surveys related to the KanCare program. The brief surveys will be electronically captured and cover a variety of provider experience issues designed to help ensure that we are as responsive and provider-friendly as possible with the KanCare program.
In addition, please note: We are asking that provider agency leadership staff complete the survey, which is expected to take between 5 and 10 minutes. This survey is intended for CEOs, COOs, CFOs or senior leadership staff at provider organizations so we’re able to receive a broad view of experiences reported.
Your feedback is important to the program’s success. This survey will be open until Friday, September 26, 2014.
Access the survey here: http://www.kancaresupport.org/survey.
Only one submission is allowed per user. Any duplicate entries will be discarded.
