Feds OK Long-Term Services in KanCare

Kansas officials said they have received formal approval from federal authorities to include long-term services for the developmentally disabled in KanCare.They said they would release later Thursday copies of the signed documents, including so-called "special terms and conditions," spelling out some of the terms of the inclusion, which has been resisted by most of the state's providers of developmental disability services.Gov. Sam Brownback, who launched his administration's Medicaid makeover on Jan. 1, 2013, called the inclusion "an important step forward for KanCare" and the 8,500 developmentally disabled people who receive Medicaid services.
