What does it mean to be an invisible Kansan? More than 8,000 Kansans with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) live in communities across the state. These Kansans lead lives in which they are cherished members of their family, valued employees in the workplace, and involved citizens of their communities. But, when it comes to important state-wide issues, they feel invisible.
Kansans with intellectual and developmental disabilities are urging the Governor and state officials to permanently carve out long-term I/DD supports from KanCare - supports that help them obtain jobs in the community and live independently. The Governor's plan will hand-over the reins of the system to private, for profit insurance companies.
Kansans with I/DD, their family members and the professionals who support them are calling on all concerned citizens to lend their voice to Invisible Kansans across the state!
Help Invisible Kansans be seen! Help them be heard!
