Expand KanCare Call In Day

CALL YOUR LEGISLATORS ON JANUARY 17TH!

It’s well past time for Governor Brownback, Lt. Governor Colyer, and legislative leadership to stop playing politics with the lives of Kansans — which is why the Alliance for a Healthy Kansas is hosting a Call-In Day next Wednesday, January 17th.

We need Kansans like you to call your Senator and Representative in Topeka on January 17th to share with them why it’s crucial that Kansas act now to expand KanCare.
