Changes are coming to Medicaid in Kansas and the Governor's office says it will mean millions of dollars in savings.
The Governor announced Medicaid will be changing, renaming it KanCare. Private medical firms will bid and contract for service with the state. Governor Brownback says that change will save Kansas approximately $350 million.
The Governor says there will be incentives to keep costs low and other medical providers say their services will need to be tailored to those low costs.
The bids are due in January.
