The state of Kansas has a special program to help some people who have suffered serious brain injuries. It's a part of the Medicaid program, but is managed under a waiver from the federal government. That waiver is up for renewal, some people are concerned that access to the program may be cut back.
Kansas officials have scheduled four meetings next week to discuss how people with disabilities will be affected when they're included in an overhaul of the state's Medicaid program.
The Department for Aging and Disability Services says the meetings are intended for physically and developmentally disabled Kansans, their families and groups that provided services. The sessions will give those parties a chance to ask questions about the overhaul.
