Kansas Statewide Farmworker Health Program
The purpose of the Kansas Statewide Farmworker Health Program (KSFHP) is to assure access to primary health care services for low-income and medically underserved migratory and seasonal farmworkers (MSFW).
The Kansas Statewide Farmworker Health Program accomplishes its goals by coordinating a state-wide voucher case management system for migratory and seasonal farmworkers to obtain health services. Vouchers for covered services are obtained from Access Point Agencies made up of state-funded primary care clinics and local health departments.
Preventive services and early intervention create a healthier population and reduce the need and the total cost of personal health services. For this reason, regional case managers and health promoters assist their clients in obtaining services through other programs such as Medicaid, Healthwave, M&I, WIC, well-child exams, family planning, and EDW. This system is a dynamic process and requires a partnership between state, local and private providers.
The program is limited to primary care defined as:
- Screening Tests
- Physical Examinations for children and adults
- Brief office visits
- Behavioral Health
- Substance Abuse Services
- Vision Care
- Prenatal Care
