The Division of Health Care Finance maintains an ongoing process of reviewing elements of its programs and operations to identify opportunities for improvement, efficiencies, and savings. The Program Improvements process began in 2008 with reviews of 14 major pieces of the Kansas Medicaid program. Those reviews led to the publication of the first Medicaid Transformation report in January 2009.
That process is now being expanded to cover all programs and operations within DHCF, including the State Employee Health Benefits Program and DHCF internal operations. The overall purpose of the process is to produce and publish regular program reviews to monitor, assess, diagnose and address policy issues in each major program area within the agency. The presentation of these reviews is designed to serve as the basis for the DHCF budget and policy initiatives on an ongoing basis.
