Alliance for a Healthy Kansas Works to Educate Communities About KanCare Expansion
 
Join  Alliance for Healthy Kansas at their upcoming community forums in Johnson County and learn more about the effort to expand KanCare.  
 
The Alliance notes KanCare expansion would help more than 150,000 Kansans have access to health care, which is an ongoing advocacy priority of UCS. 
 
UCS is a part of Alliance for a Healthy Kansas' coalition of more than a hundred organizations and leaders across the state who support KanCare expansion.  Business leaders, doctors and hospitals, social service and safety net organizations, faith communities, chambers of commerce, and consumer health advocates have all joined the fight to expand KanCare.
 
Alliance for a Healthy Kansas reports that $1.9 million of our tax dollars are being forfeited every day, along with opportunities for communities to create jobs and protect hospitals and rural communities due to the lack of KanCare expansion.  Mark your calendars to attend and RSVP below:
