A former Sedgwick County elections official and Wichita city council member has been hired to fill a vacancy as inspector general for Kansas Medicaid programs.

Bill Gale started work Monday as inspector general within the Kansas Department of Health and Environment's Division of Health Care Finance. The position was created in 2007 when the division was a stand-alone agency known as the Kansas Health Policy Authority. The position has been vacant for about a year.

The inspector general audits Kansas Medicaid programs and contracts, including three new agreements signed by the state with managed care providers. Medicaid provides health care coverage to poor, elderly and disabled.

Gale was on Sedgwick County's election commission from 2003 to 2011. He also was on the Wichita council from 1995 to 2003.
