As a Kansas Medicaid HCBS Waiver Participant, you have elected to self-direct your services and act as the sole employer for your caregivers. We are here to support you as your Financial Management Services (FMS) provider.
Within the self-direction model and Kansas state law (K.S.A. 39-7, 100), beneficiaries have the right to “make decisions about, direct the provisions of and control the attendant care services received by such individuals including, but not limited to selecting, training, managing, paying, and dismissing of the direct support worker.” The beneficiary or the beneficiary’s representative have decision making authority over certain services and takes direct responsibility to manage these services with the assistance of a system of available supports. The beneficiary or their representative is the employer. Helpers, Inc. is the Financial Management Service and not the employer.
If you are interested in establishing services with Helpers, Inc., please call our office to schedule an intake. The intake process requires about 30 minutes of your time on the phone, and then we will send our paperwork to you electronically for you to complete. We will also work with the insurance provider (MCO) to ensure that the authorization for services is sent to us. Once your caregivers have been identified, we will send our paperwork to your caregivers electronically so that they can fill it out and send it back to us.
Getting started is easy!
