Letter to Editor: KanCare Expansion
By Dr. Jeremy Presley | March 20, 2019
I am a family physician in Dodge City. I am also the President of the Kansas Academy of Family Physicians. In family medicine, we strive to achieve the triple aim: better care for patients, improved outcomes, and lower costs. In my practice, I see patients every day who have private insurance coverage, Medicare, KanCare, and those who are self-pay.
I see patients without insurance on a daily basis.
There are 150,000 mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends, and neighbors who could have access to health care services if KanCare were expanded. Most of them are working adults, some with two or three jobs.
