TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Gov. Sam Brownback's administration resubmitted a Medicaid waiver proposal to the federal government after the first proposal needed to be withdrawn.

The state needs the waiver in order to use federal Medicaid dollars for the Brownback administration's managed care plan, called KanCare.

State officials withdrew a proposal that was submitted April 26 after realizing that they had not notified Haskell Health Center in Lawrence and the White Cloud Health Station.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/OKLqrz ) the administration consulted with those two American Indian groups and hosted more public forums before resubmitting the proposed waiver to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services this week.
