Why Expanding Kancare Matters

WHAT: Health Care Community Forum
WHEN: Thursday,  November 1st, 6:30 PM
WHERE: Empress Event Center 7 N Main St Ft. Scott

The Alliance for a Healthy Kansas will hold a community forum in Fort Scott on November 1st to discuss the importance of expanding access to health care services.
KanCare Expansion provides an opportunity to extend health coverage to 150,000 low-income Kansans. In fact, by not enacting KanCare Expansion, Kansas loses $1.8 million per day in health care funding that could pay for doctor visits, medication, and other health care to improve the physical and financial health of the residents of Bourbon County and the rest of the state.

The forum is an opportunity for health care and social services providers, business owners, faith leaders, and other concerned community members to come together to discuss the importance of enhancing access to care.

For more information, contact April Holman at (785) 554-0152.
The Alliance for a Healthy Kansas is a statewide coalition of grassroots citizens, community leaders, and organizations across Kansas, including business leaders, doctors and hospitals, faith communities, and many more. The Alliance is dedicated to promoting policies that assure everyone has the opportunity to attain their highest level of health. Learn more at ExpandKanCare.com .
