Open enrollment under way for KanCare members

Members who joined KanCare in January 2013 can change plans during this first open enrollment period

TOPEKA – KanCare members who joined the new Medicaid program on Jan. 1, 2013, have an open enrollment period that began Dec. 1 and will be open until March 2, 2014. During the open enrollment period, members have the opportunity to switch health plans after reviewing their current KanCare services and comparing services among the three KanCare health plans: Amerigroup, Sunflower State Health Plan, UnitedHealthcare Community Health Plan.

This first group of members should have received open enrollment packets in November.

Members who enrolled in KanCare after Jan. 1, 2013, will have their open enrollment period in 2014 during the corresponding month of their original enrollment.

KanCare members who like the plan they have now and do not want to change plans will be able to continue with their current health plan without taking action on the open enrollment packet.

If you’re a KanCare member and have questions regarding open enrollment, call KanCare Consumer Assistance at 866-305-5147.
