Nursing Home Utilization of KanCare Members

Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration

This measures the impact of managed care on the nursing facility population as KanCare was designed to have a higher utilization of home and community based services and lower nursing home utilization. The data is based on individuals who are receiving nursing facility services through Medicaid each month.


Graphs show the number of KanCare members utilizing nursing home services for FY13 through FY17 and FY18 Quarterly

In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years.  Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized.  This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes.  Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter.  This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
