Kansas Medicaid Expansion Questions


Why would Kansas citizens accept Medicaid Expansion when the state currently has over 6,500 people on a waiting list for regular Medicaid? According to 12-year veteran of the Kansas legislature, Virgil Peck, these thousands of Kansas citizens are eligible for regular Medicaid, but are waiting to receive benefits because the legislature has not yet provided the funding to cover them, and because Kansas does not having adequate facilities to treat their disabilities, which he says is true for both the medically and mentally disabled.


Thousands of disabled are waiting for Medicaid coverage as it is now, so why would we, or how can we, add another 75,000 people with Medicaid Expansion? Although the waiting list is decreasing, it's continued for many years.
