Introducing our fall 2022 Walk with the Gap Challenge!
Costs are rising and Kansans are paying more to take care of themselves and provide for their families. Health care is no exception. It’s time to help Kansans get more for their money when it comes to health care and bringing good-paying jobs to our state.
Expanding KanCare will reduce health care costs for everyone by providing health insurance to 150,000 residents in rural areas, small towns, and cities across the state. Expanding KanCare will provide coverage to hardworking Kansans and result in much-needed investments in our communities to strengthen our hospitals, clinics, and provider networks. It will also make Kansas more competitive with neighboring states that have expanded Medicaid, protecting jobs and ensuring Kansas continues to be a good place to live, work and raise a family. Now is the time to invest in our state and ensure that Kansans have access to the care they need when they need it. Now is the time to Expand KanCare.
All of Kansas’ surrounding states have expanded their Medicaid programs, leaving Kansas as an island without affordable health coverage for many of its residents. Our goal is to bring awareness to KanCare expansion by walking the perimeter of Kansas — that’s about 1,250 miles! Your participation is crucial to the success of this challenge! Every step counts!
