If you’re trying to figure out Medicaid/KanCare for yourself or your family, you don’t have to do it alone.

GraceMed‘s Mayra Mauricio-Rosales and Esther Epp of the Kansas Division of Health Care Finance will be at Newton Public Library, 720 N. Oak Street, to answer questions about Medicaid/KanCare, and to provide assistance with enrollment, first and third Fridays of each month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Mauricio-Rosales focuses on assisting families with children, as well as caretakers and pregnant women, as part of the Healthy Kansas Kids campaign. The goal of Healthy Kansas Kids is to support families from the start of the application process until a determination is made, including both new applications and yearly reviews. The assistance is offered in both Spanish and English.

Epp, a KDHE outreach specialist, has over 20 years’ experience in processing medical applications for elderly and disabled people. She is a KanCare liaison and is happy to provide customer service and solve problems.

In addition to these in-person opportunities at the library, Mauricio-Rosales and Epp are happy to offer help via phone or email. Reach Mauricio-Rosales by calling 316-866-200, Ext. 2835, or email her at Reach Epp by calling 316-281-9802, or email her at
