  • I live in MO & have medicaid. YES you can use it in KS if he accepts it. You should call the number on the back of you card to be certain. You have to choose a primary care doctor or they will choose one for you.

  • glad you at least got your answer :) sorry they don't take it. Hopefully you will find a doctor in MO that is just as good as your KA doc :)
