Q: Where can I go for affordable health insurance for children in Kansas?
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment oversees various health and insurance programs, including the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). CHIP provides health care coverage for low-income children living in families with incomes that exceed Medicaid limits.
Health services are purchased through either a managed care model or a fee-for-service model. The KanCare program is the State of Kansas’ managed care program. KanCare is provided to all Medicaid and CHIP consumers. For more information about programs and eligibility requirements, visit the Kansas Department of Health and Environment's page on KanCare and Medicaid.
