Kansas health care finance director to keep job

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Physician and former state Rep. Susan Mosier is staying on as director of the division of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment overseeing programs that provide health care coverage for the state’s residents.

The department says Mosier was promoted last week from acting director to director of the Division of Health Care Finance.

She’d been acting director since May, when Kari Bruffett left to become secretary of the Department for Aging and Disability Services.

Mosier was a Manhattan doctor elected to the Kansas House as a Republican in 2010. She gave up her seat in 2012 to become director of the state’s Medicaid program, which provides health coverage to the needy and disabled.

The Medicaid program falls under the division Mosier now leads.
