Perry-Lecompton drug-testing policy creates questions about teachers

If you're going to do drug test start at the top with the superintendent all the way down to the bus drivers.

Then start with the students.

New study came out last week shows alcohol is the number one gateway drug followed by cigarettes

Topeka hospitals lose millions without Medicaid expansion

Topeka’s two hospitals would lose millions in revenue under provisions of the Affordable Care Act, but expanding Medicaid could blunt some of that impact, according to an analysis.

The Kansas Hospital Association projected how much revenue hospitals would lose locally and statewide under the health care law. Across the board, the impact was deeper if Kansas doesn’t expand Medicaid, which is known as KanCare under Kansas’ system of contracting with three private managed care organizations. Much of the impact came from Medicaid payments returning to their normal levels after a temporary increase in reimbursement rates for 2013 and 2014, said Kevin Han, chief financial officer for Stormont-Vail HealthCare.

Under the health care law, all states would have expanded Medicaid to cover households making up to 138 percent of the federal poverty line. The federal government would pay all of the cost of expansion in the first year, though that would be reduced to 90 percent over time. The law also included provisions to cut other reimbursements hospitals receive.

In Kansas, Medicaid covers children up to 133 percent of the poverty line, which would be an annual income of $31,721 for a family of four, with higher income limits for infants and toddlers. Adults with children can be covered only if they have an income of $7,872 or less, and childless adults aren’t eligible. KHA estimated about 100,000 low-income adults would gain coverage if Kansas expanded Medicaid by 2016.
