Eligibility Information

Kansas has a variety of programs prompting independent living in safe, healthy environments.  Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) was created to provide medical and nonmedical services to children and adults in their home, assisted living or residential care facility.  Services are designed to provide individuals with the least intensive level of care, who may otherwise be placed in a nursing home, hospital or intermediate care facility for the individuals with intellectual disabilities.

Persons must have a medical need for the special care.  There must be an open space in the HCBS program and the individual must be determined eligible for Medicaid.  The resource limit is $2000 for single persons and there are special resource provisions for those individuals who have a spouse.  People on HCBS must also share in the cost of care.  Persons with income more than $747.00 a month help pay for their care.  People on HCBS also get a case manager.  The Case manager oversees the medical care.
