Join us for a virtual lunch with key leaders within the health sector to discuss the path forward for Medicaid Expansion in 2022 in Kansas.

Kansas Lt. Gov. David Toland, who also serves as the Kansas State Secretary of Commerce, will provide an update on the Governor’s plans around Kancare Expansion–which would provide access to health care for the 165,000+ Kansans who currently fall in the coverage gap. He will share current data on the economic impact Expansion will have in Kansas and the steps needed to move the policy forward.

Sen. Doll, a Republican legislator from Garden City, Kansas and a longtime advocate of KanCare Expansion will discuss the path forward for Expansion through the legislative process and how health leaders can help leverage their voice and position to support this work.
