Kansas Shakes Up Social Service System

TOPEKA, Kan. -- The alphabet soup of agencies that provide social services to Kansans -- SRS, KDOA, KDHE -- is being scrambled in what officials are claiming is the biggest reorganization in the history of Kansas state government.
Effective Monday, several programs will move from one agency to another and agency shorthand titles will change. The result, officials say, will be a more streamlined and efficient way of delivering services to children, the disabled, the poor and the elderly.
The reorganization also is seen as necessary for KanCare, Gov. Sam Brownback's initiative to overhaul the way Medicaid works in Kansas. Brownback called it "a crucial component of KanCare" in announcing his executive order for the shakeup.
