  • Gov. Sam Brownback and United Healthcare are preparing to announce an initiative to help disabled Kansas residents find good jobs.
    Brownback and United Healthcare CEO Steve Nelson scheduled a news conference Friday at the University of Kansas campus in Overland Park.
    Officials offered few details ahead of the announcement, except that they planned to launch the new effort and describe its funding. They also said representatives of groups serving the disabled would be present.
    United Healthcare's Community Plan of Kansas is one of three private health insurers managing most of the Kansas Medicaid program serving the needy and disabled.
    Brownback already has said Kansas will move more quickly than planned to boost in-home services for the disabled.
