TOPEKA, Kan.—SKIL Resource Center President/CEO Shari Coatney and SKIL staff are one of the groups participating today with Kansas ADAPT, in a peaceful protest at the Kansas Statehouse in Topeka to expand Medicaid. ADAPT, which stands for American Disabled for Attendant Programs Today, is a national grassroots disability rights organization that fights for better treatment for people with disabilities.

“It’s time to take action,” Coatney said in a telephone interview, “and demand healthcare coverage in Kansas for all of the people who have been left uninsured. Many of our personal care attendants who work through SKIL don’t have healthcare coverage. People throughout Kansas who need the healthcare services that Medicaid provides deserve to be covered, and to be covered now.”

SKIL is a multi-faceted independent living center that serves people with disabilities or those whose environment is disabling. Headquartered in Parsons, SKIL has branch offices in Chanute, Columbus, Fredonia, Independence, Pittsburg and Sedan.
