Gaining Input on Health Reform

By  | 

A 20-city listening tour is making its way through the state trying to find out how they can help you get affordable health care.

The Kansas Health Policy Authority met in a series of roundtable discussions in Emporia and Topeka Thursday.

The authority is charged with developing a plan for making improvements in health reform.

" It isn't as easy as just finding affordable health insurance. You can't find affordable health insurance if you don't attack the underlying cause and that's the increased cost of health care and how do we more equitably spread these costs," said Nancy Praeger, State Insurance Commissioner.

After it puts together the health reform options KHPA will take that to the legislature and governor in November.
