Work Allocation and Assessment Project

IHDPS staff, with funding from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, are working with partners at the KU School of Social Welfare to review the instrument currently being used to assess the service needs of participants in the Work Opportunities Reward Kansans (WORK) optional Medicaid program for people with disabilities who are competitively employed.  

Options for updating the tool to align with other instruments being used in Kansas and nationwide are also being explored and validated, specifically the Medicaid Functional Eligibility Instrument (MFEI) currently being developed and tested by IHDPS partners in the KU Center for Aging and Disability Options.
