Public Notice

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Division of Health Care Finance (KDHE-DHCF) is amending the Kansas Medicaid State Plan and the Kansas Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Plan to revise the Presumptive Eligibility (PE) online application. The PE tool is being enhanced to use a single application for Medicaid/CHIP and presumptive eligibility. Presumptive eligibility is being expanded to allow all Qualified Entities (QE) to complete PE determinations. This will expand all Qualified Entities’ ability to complete PE determinations for parents and caretaker relatives, former foster care children, and individuals seeking treatment for breast or cervical cancer in addition to the pregnant woman and children. The new PE application will be implemented on July 1, 2021.

The proposed effective date for the Medicaid and CHIP state plan amendments (SPAs) is July 1, 2021.
