OneCare Kansas is a Medicaid option for some members to receive coordination of physical and behavioral health care with long term services and supports.
OneCare Kansas expands upon medical home models to include links to community and social supports. OneCare Kansas focuses on the whole person and all of his or her needs to manage his or her conditions and be as healthy as possible. All the caregivers involved in a OneCare Kansas member’s health communicate with one another so that all of a patient's needs are addressed in a comprehensive manner.
OneCare Kansas is intended for people with certain chronic conditions, like diabetes, asthma, or mental illness. These people must be KanCare members. They can be members who also receive Medicare along with Medicaid.
