Volunteers from civic, industry and governmental groups are now working with staff from the Kansas Insurance Department to discuss how to implement a state-based health benefits exchange that would meet requirements of the federal health reform law.

There are eight work groups chaired by volunteers outside the department who are working on the various aspects of establishing a Kansas exchange. The work group activities will be posted on this site as they are available.
