InterHab is dedicated to bringing about bold change for Kansans with developmental disabilities

Our staff and membership take seriously the responsibility to work with local, state, and federal policymakers to ensure that all Kansans with developmental disabilities have the opportunities to live inclusive lives as independently as possible.
Much has been accomplished over the last 40+ years, but with each new political era comes new challenges. We are focused on ensuring that community supports and services providers have the necessary tools and funding to provide quality life experiences and outcomes for the Kansas I/DD community. And, we are focused on holding the State accountable to its requirements under state and federal law.

The 2018 InterHab Legislative Priorities:

  • Removing Home and Community Based Services from KanCare
  • Ensuring reimbursement rates for providers catch up and stay on track with the cost of living
  • Eliminating the confusing, unnecessary layer of MCO Care Coordination for HCBS
  • Fixing the background check process which currently takes weeks to complete
  • Stopping KanCare 2.0
  • Requiring legislative approval for any further changes to the state’s Medicaid system
