Kansas currently has six waivers that are open to children. All are HCBS 1915(c) Medicaid waivers and all waive parental income. See this HCBS Waiver Page for information about Kansas’ programs or this Access Guide. Kansas also aligns its waivers with its privatized KanCare 1115 waiver, placing waiver participants in managed care.
In the past, Kansas charged a parent fee to waiver participant families who were not low income. It appears that Kansas is now only charging a client obligation fee, meaning only the child’s income would be counted in assessing or not assessing a client obligation fee. If the child has no income or minimal income, the client obligation is $0.
