Home and Community Based Services Waiver Services Fact Sheets

Home and Community Based Service (HCBS) waivers are KanCare (Kansas Medicaid) programs that provide services to a person in their community instead of an institution, such as a nursing home or state hospital. In Kansas, the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) oversees the HCBS waivers. There are currently seven HCBS waivers in the state of Kansas. The services you receive will vary depending on the waiver you qualify for and your individual needs.

HCBS services do not pay for living expenses, or room and board.
