Eliminate the Wait Header Image

Kansans with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) and Physical Disabilities (PD) are forced to suffer and wait for up to 11 years to access essential, life-sustaining Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) under the Medicaid Waiver program.

As a fellow Kansan, we ask YOU to TAKE ACTION TODAY to Eliminate the 11-year wait for HCBS disability services. Tell the Legislature to stop ignoring the needs of Kansans with disabilities by forcing them to suffer on waitlists for years. Ask them to add the funding to Eliminate the Wait for HCBS disability services! It only takes 30 seconds – click the "Take Action" button below.

The waitlist for Kansans with I/DD has skyrocketed to 5,187 Kansans waiting – a nearly 70% increase over the last 10 years alone! The waitlist for Kansans with PD has also surged to 2,362. Not long ago, Kansas had NO waiting lists for these essential services!
