Meet the Ombudsman

Kerrie Bacon

KanCare Ombudsman Kerrie BaconDear KanCare Consumer,

My name is Kerrie Bacon and I live in Topeka, Kansas. I have helped people with disabilities for many years. Before becoming the Ombudsman, I worked for the Kansas Commission on Disability Concerns for more than 10 years, as Interim Executive Director for eight months at the Kansas Council on Developmental Disabilities and in KDADS’ Money Follows the Person program for nine months. 

I have done a great deal of work helping people find resources, answering questions and resolving their issues. Those skills are very helpful when working with people who contact the Ombudsman’s office.

Treating people with respect and dignity is a core value in the Ombudsman’s office. The primary role of the Ombudsman’s office is to help people understand how to navigate the KanCare system and assist them in solving problems.

Please call the Ombudsman’s office to talk about concerns you may have.

Sincerely,
Kerrie Bacon Signature
