The REACH Foundation encourages adoption of a state solution, such as KanCare expansion, to close the health coverage gap that affects thousands of low-income, working adults and families in Kansas.
- Nearly 130,000 Kansans are unable to secure coverage because state leaders have declined to expand Medicaid to support adults who fall in the coverage gap.
- Thirty-six states and the District of Columbia have taken advantage of the opportunity to expand Medicaid. Data from their experiences are clear: Medicaid expansion has had a positive impact on health outcomes and has not harmed state budgets.
- Health providers, hospitals, businesses and local governments agree that expanding KanCare is a fiscally sound health care solution that would benefit workers and the state’s economy. Analyses from Michigan, Colorado, Louisiana, Montana and other states have demonstrated these economic results.
