Frail and Elderly Waiver Program
The Frail Elderly (FE) waiver provides Kansas seniors an alternative to nursing home care. Services include personal care, household tasks, and health services. The program promotes independence within the community and helps to offer residency in the most integrated environment.
To be eligible for the FE waiver, an individual must meet the following criteria:
Must be 65 years old;
Meet the Medicaid nursing facility threshold score;
Be financially eligible for Medicaid
Brain Injury Waiver Program
The Brain Injury (BI) waiver program serves Kansas residents between the ages of 16-65 who have a brain injury that has caused temporary or permanent impairment to their behavioral, cognitive, or physical functions and would otherwise require institutionalization in a TBI Rehabilitation Facility. Its purpose is to ensure they can stay in their homes and be as independent as possible in a safe, healthy environment. It’s a short term, rehabilitative program that provides therapies and services that enable its members to rely less on support as their independence increases.
To be eligible for the BI Waiver, an individual must meet the following criteria:
• Be 16 to 65 years of age
• Have a brain injury and provide medical documentation to support the BI
• Meet the criteria for TBI rehabilitation hospital placement
• Be determined disabled (SSI/SSDI) or have a pending determination by the Social Security Administration (if over 18 years of age)
• Have active rehabilitation needs
• Be financially eligible for Medicaid

Area Agency on Aging Non-Medicaid Service
The mission of the Area Agency on Aging is to act as the single-point-of entry, where an older adult can navigate their way through the aging network and become linked with the services which allow them to make choices for themselves with a primary focus on maintaining independence in their own home and communities.
We have options for private pay individuals that do not qualify for Medicaid, Veteran, or AAA services or who need additional assistance.
MFP (Money Follows the Person) Program
If you live in a nursing home, the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program may be able to help you move home. The state of Kansas received grant money from The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). This money is used to help people move out of nursing homes. The MFP provides Transition Coordination Services.
