Protected Income Level Advocacy Action Alert

Kansans with disabilities using Medicaid in-home services celebrated the 2019 State Legislature’s decision to increase the amount of monthly income they can keep to live on to $1,177/month. This means some people may be able to keep as much as $430/month more for the next year.

Q: What would you do with the money if you didn’t pay it toward your services?
A: I would buy food.

Time and again, “food” or “enough food”, or “the right food” was the answer to this question.

Some additional answers included:

  • I would buy a toy for my daughter.
  • I would buy the over the counter lotion/medication my doctor recommended.
  • I would pay down overdue utility bills.
  • I would buy a pair of shoes.

While the Kansas Legislature gave folks this bit of clear blue sky, clouds have rolled in as the Kansas Dept. of Health and Environment has informed advocates, folks will have to continue to pay down their monthly income to $747 for six months of the next year while they are re-programming their computer systems.

Another six months folks will have to wait to buy food, or a toy for their daughter, or over the counter medications. Another six months of minimum payments towards utility bills. Another six months in tattered shoes.

KDHE can do better.

Call your elected representatives to thank them and ask them to let folks keep their money permanently. Ask your elected officials to demand KDHE make the needed changes immediately.
