What Is Kansas HealthWave?
HealthWave and HealthConnect are low cost or no cost health plans for Kansans. There are no exclusions for preexisting health conditions or deductibles to be met. Coverage includes medical, dental, mental, behavioral health, and substance abuse services: it emphasizes preventing health problems through regular checkups, or minimizing their costs through early diagnosis.
