AARP Kansas commissioned the Kansas Health Institute to conduct a review of social isolation among older adults in Kansas, with an emphasis on Johnson County and Wyandotte County. The report provides a summary of current research on social isolation, possible causes and the degree to which those causes differentially affect older adults based on gender, race/ethnicity and other demographic factors. Promising interventions and policies that can address the problem also are explored.
The Health Insurance Marketplace open enrollment period provides an important opportunity for Kansans who have coverage through the marketplace to review your plan and compare options to make sure your plan still works for you. Last year, a little more than 57,000 Kansans signed up for health care coverage through www.healthcare.gov, which was created by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
