Kansas health plans might have to cover more services for children starting in  2014.

Consultants in the Denver office of Milliman Inc. raise that possibility in a report prepared for the Kansas Insurance Department.

A state is supposed to look at the 10 candidate plans when choosing the final EHB benchmark plan. Milliman left commercial HMO plans out because Kansas has no large, statewide commercial HMO, the consultants say.

The final EHB benchmark plan is supposed to offer benefits in 10 different areas, including ambulatory patient services, emergency services and hospitalization as well as a pediatric services category that includes pediatric oral and vision health services and a category that includes both rehabilitative and habilitative services.
