Keeping Your Same Providers in KanCare

  • No.  In an emergency, go to the nearest hospital emergency room.  All hospitals with emergency rooms will see anyone in an emergency situation.
  • The health plan will check to make sure another special doctor is in their network first.  If there is not, they will help you see the doctor you need.  As long as the health plan approves you seeing the special doctor, you will not pay anything.
  • No.
  • Yes, they might.  We want doctors and others to sign up with all three health plans.  If your providers are not in network, some of those providers could be paid 90% of the approved KanCare rates.
  • No
  • You should choose a MCO that your providers, including your nursing home accept.
