The Kansas Health Institute hosted a convening to discuss “The Impact of Underinsurance on Kansans” on Jan. 23, 2009.

The convening was the first phase of KHI’s examination of underinsurance in Kansas. While much attention has been devoted to addressing issues affecting uninsured Kansans, far less has been focused on those who are underinsured. KHI sponsored a convening to encourage dialogue, enhance understanding of underinsurance and its impact on Kansans, create consensus among participants about defining and measuring underinsurance, and identify salient policy implications.
