Administrative History

Administrative History: The Commission on the Future of Health Care, Inc. was created in 1991 when Governor Joan Finney signed Senate Bill 403. The purpose of the Commission was to develop a long-range health care policy plan, including both short- and long-term strategies; to identify the social values of Kansas in relation to health care; and to provide a forum for Kansans to participate in the development of health policy.

The Commission reviewed the recommendations of former health advisory panels, studied health care projects being implemented in the state at the time, and gained information on health care reform issues from a variety of experts. It also developed detailed plans concerning health care reform and to procure a public-private funding base to support these projects, as well as implementing the plans it formulated and to solicit the active participation of Kansans in health policy development.

The Commission was disbanded in 1994.
