Click here to apply for KanCare

If you do not currently have coverage for KanCare, you can apply. To apply for medical coverage, you must complete and submit an application. Use the guide below to get an application for you and your family. You can apply online.

Individuals with disabilities and the frail elderly applying for KanCare who believe they may qualify to receive long-term services and supports, Home- and Community-Based Services (HCBS), should fill out a paper application to submit to KDHE rather than apply electronically.

The paper application provides a greater amount of detail on how to apply for the Medicaid waiver in-home services, which allow people to remain in their homes and communities, as well as for medical care. You can download and print an application if you go to the link on this page:

http://www.kdheks.gov/hcf/medical_assistance/applyforassistance_elderly_and_disabilities.html

If you think you would qualify for HCBS services, make sure you check the box on Page 4 of the print-out that asks: "Does this person need help with nursing home costs or in-home care?"
