Medicaid Summit To Discuss Possible Program Changes

The WSU Hugo Wall School of Urban and Public Affairs is holding a Medicaid policy summit Thursday to discuss potential changes to the program that provides medical services to poor, disabled and elderly citizens.

The summit will be held in the ballroom on the third floor of the Wichita State Rhatigan Student Center from 2-5 p.m.

Medicaid is a central policy concern for the state of Kansas, with a nearly $3 billion budget.

The meeting will include a brief history of Medicaid in Kansas, discussions of reforms in other states as well as current and future changes to the program.

Following discussion, a panel of service providers will comment on the impact of changes on clients and patients.
