Disability Employment

Update on the new Kansas Authenticare system.

Update on the new Kansas Authenticare system. At this time we need to make sure everyone is doing what they can to get paid on time and correctly.

The following are very important steps that need to be done.

1-    If you’re NOT calling into the Kansas Authenticare system (no phone, etc) you must state either on the time sheet or on the Call In/Out Notes sheet WHY YOU ARE NOT CALLING IN USING THE AUTHENTICARE SYSTEM. Put this on every time sheet or Call In/Out Notes sheet you turn in.

2-    CODES- if you don’t put them on your time sheet, if you forgot to call in, Authenticare will not accept times without CODES.
CODES are numbered from 11-34. See back of the time sheet for the codes you use while working. Put all codes on all time sheets.

3-    Call In/Out Notes Sheet- The notes are called “Call in/out”. This is for the times you called (either right or wrong). The TIME SHEET Should say the times you ACTUALLY WORKED, NOT WHAT YOU CALLED IN. On the Call in/out notes sheet, put why you didn’t call at the time you started or ended your shift.  Remember don’t clock in more than 3 minutes early or 3 minutes late.

4-    You must be calling from the CUSTOMERS PHONE. If Authenticare does not accept it, call Parsons at 800-688-5616 to see if the correct number is in the Authenticare system for the customer you work for.

5-    Services when calling- choose the correct service when calling. Listen for the correct option you need.

  • PD-personal services-these are the DAY TIME HOURS WORKED (not sleep cycle)
  • MFPD-MONEY FOLLOWS THE PERSON-If you know your employer has these services, select this option when calling in.

6-    Update your contact information-in case we need to reach you regarding your time sheet. Also, if you don’t have our “new” 2012 time sheets call the office and request some.


Thank you for helping us make this payroll system rum smoother for everyone.  SKIL Fiscal Agent Staff

Noah Wyle, who played young Dr. John Carter was arrested at recent ADAPT Protest

adapt- noah wyle arrestedWASHINGTON (AP) — Former "ER" star Noah Wyle and about 100 members of the group ADAPT were arrested Monday during a Capitol Hill protest to urge Congress not to cut Medicaid.

In an interview with The Associated Press while waiting to be processed in the basement of the Cannon House Office Building where the protest took place in the rotunda, Wyle said being arrested for the first time was "slightly surreal."

"As soon as everybody saw me being led away, they let up a big whooping cheer, which made me feel really good," Wyle said.

Many of the protesters were in wheelchairs. They're the ones who would be hurt most by any Medicaid cuts, Wyle said.

"Those cuts would reduce the hours of home health care aides being able to come in and give basic services, which would force people to basically give up their right to live in integrated, portable, accessible housing and put them in an institution," he said.

Wyle, who played young Dr. John Carter on the long-running show, said that's a "very short-sighted economic decision because it costs up to four times as much to have somebody in an institution than it does to have them require some hourly assistance every day."

Not only that, Wyle pointed out that people with disabilities would be taken away from their families and their jobs. So, he said, it's not really a medical issue, it's more of a civil rights issue.

Wyle had warned his ex-wife and kids, 9-year-old son Owen, and 6-year-old daughter Auden, that he might be arrested.

"I think they're really proud of the old man right now," he said.

It was five weeks ago that George Clooney, Wyle's former "ER" co-star, was arrested during a demonstration in front of the Sudanese Embassy in Washington.

Wyle said he would "let George focus on the international; I'll deal with the small domestic issues."

Wyle now plays the lead character in TNT's science fiction series, "Falling Skies."0423-noah-wyle-arrested-1

Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Welfare, and Pensions (HELP) Committee will soon introduce a bill, the Rebuild America Act, that will quintuple the credit for hiring people with disabilities, allow the credit for two years rather than one, allow the credit for persons eligible for vocational rehabilitation services but are not receiving such services, and extend WOTC for all groups through December 31st, 2015.
