New website for family members to report KanCare experiences

A new web site has been created for parents, guardians and families of people with intellectual disabilities to share stories about their experience with KanCare, the state of Kansas’ managed care program for Medicaid services.

The site, kancareddwatch.com, was developed and funded by a group of parents and families, and is intended as a place for people to share stories and anecdotes, read links to news articles about KanCare, and access resource information.  Anyone submitting stories on the site can choose whether his or her name and information will be visible to the public.

This will be the first central gathering point for KanCare stories from the intellectual and developmental disability community. The steering committee for its development is comprised of parents from throughout Kansas. Several moderators will verify posters’ identity and review content, to ensure a civil and authentic exchange of information.

The new site will be promoted in a variety of ways, but the first step is to encourage families to tell their stories. If you are an individual who receives intellectual/developmental disability services, a parent or guardian, or a family member who has been closely involved with the KanCare program, please visit kancareddwatch.com.

We need your help today!  We want to know how well KanCare is serving persons with I/DD. Please visit the site and help us discover the many stories we have not yet heard.
