KanCare is the new name for Kansas Medicaid and HealthWave. Kansas has contracted with three new health plans, or managed care organization (MCOs), to coordinate health care for nearly all Medicaid beneficiaries. The KanCare health plans are Amerigroup Kansas, Sunflower State Health Plan, and UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Kansas.

Each Medicaid beneficiary is assigned to one of the KanCare health plans. Beneficiaries in KanCare will receive all the same services provided under the previous Medicaid delivery system, plus additional services. The KanCare health plans are required to coordinate all of the care a beneficiary receives.

For KanCare information and assistance, call 1-866-305-5147. Enrollment specialists are available to answer any questions you have and to help you enroll over the phone.

Some Medicaid waiver programs are still maintained by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) and Kansas Medical Assistance Program (KMAP). The KanCare website maintains a current list of consumer benefit coverage plans excluded from KanCare.
