Tools for Engaging Policymakers: KanCare 2.0 Public Hearings

Local forums provide a great opportunity to learn about the positions your elected officials have on key issues. They are an opportunity to engage policymakers on the important topic of expanding KanCare.

We know asking questions at public meetings may not be natural for everyone. To make the process easier, we have drafted sample questions to ask at forums or in person.

Here’s how:

  1. Find your district here by searching here.
  2. Then look below to see upcoming events. If there is one in your area, make plans to attend!
  3. Download our sample questions and ask candidates (or, ask the moderator) about expanding KanCare!
