TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Medicaid program is mailing questionnaires to 130,000 households asking who lives in each one and how many expect to file income tax returns next year.

Kansas officials said Monday they're required to seek the information under the 2010 federal health care overhaul. Medicaid is a joint state-federal program covering health care for the needy and disabled.

The forms are going to homes with children and pregnant women. They are not going to the elderly or disabled.

The state is asking households to return the questionnaires by Sept. 15, so it can be collecting the information by October.

The questionnaires ask households to list each resident, their relationships and who plans to file tax returns.
