Kansas holding hearings on disability services
Wichita Kansas is holding hearings on proposed changes to how how disabled Kansans receive services.
The Wichita Eagle reports the state is holding hearings Thursday and Monday to provide an update and answer questions about the proposed system.
Kansans with disabilities now receive medical care, residential and day services, as well as other help through Medicaid. People with disabilities receive services from seven Medicaid waivers, which are divided based on disability type. The state wants to combine the seven waivers into one universal waiver.
Hearings are being held in Wichita, Kansas City, Hays and Pittsburg.
