Become a Provider

The following health plans or managed care organizations (MCOs) were awarded the contracts to provide KanCare services:

  • Amerigroup Kansas (thru December 2018)
  • Sunflower Health Plan
  • UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Kansas
  • Aetna Better Health of Kansas (Available to members January 1, 2019)

Things to Know

The KanCare health plans must pay at least 100 percent of the current fee-for-service Medicaid rate (as of 11/9/12) to all contracted, in-plan providers. The rate cannot decrease for the life of the KanCare contracts. You can negotiate a different reimbursement structure if you would like to do so.

If you do not sign up with the KanCare health plans, you will be considered an out-of-network provider. Out-of-network providers will receive 90 percent of the current fee-for-service rates.

To ensure a broad base of providers, we encourage providers to enroll with each of the KanCare plans.  Due to the health plan regulations, enrollment with KMAP, is required as well. Enrollment in KMAP is required, however seeing Fee For Service members is not mandated. The KMAP enrollment can be completed online.

If you do choose to participate in all three KanCare plans, please complete the initial application and make copies to submit to the other two plans. It is very important that the signature page is an original for all three application sets.

Applications for facilities, hospitals and HCBS providers as well as behavioral health providers are available for download.  The forms are listed at the bottom of this page.

You can find more information about each of the KanCare plans, or apply individually, by accessing the links below.
