Nursing Facility Member Support to Apply for LTC Coverage

The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) and the Kansas Department of Health and the Environment (KDHE) have collaborated to produce a video that is designed to guide nursing facility workers who help patients apply for long-term care coverage under Medicaid/KanCare.

This video is part of a State of Kansas effort to speed up the long-term care eligibility process by clarifying the financial documentation requirements for applicants and those who are assisting them to apply.  

KDHE staff also have created a checklist to help navigate the eligibility process for long-term care. You can download or review the checklist/guide.

For additional eligibility application assistance, please call 800 792-4884.

Training Available for Providers, MCO and State Staff

Below you will find a comprehensive list of trainings available to date.  This list will be updated on a quarterly basis, so check back soon.

“On June 19th, 2017, training was provided to MCO staff which included an overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as well as Federal information regarding accessibility of health care services for individuals with disabilities. These slides are posted below for reference, and any questions can be directed to the State ADA Coordinator, Anthony Fadale. Anthony also welcomes any requests to set up additional trainings for MCO or provider staff who are interested in learning more about these topics. Please contact Anthony Fadale by email at Anthony.Fadale@ks.gov.”

Note: the ADA Overview 2017 has been revised to reflect the withdrawal of technical assistance and guidance documents by the Department of Justice.
