Description

The Department for Aging and Disability Services administers federal and state programs to assist elderly citizens as well as individuals in need of disability, mental health, or addiction services. The Department also acts as an advocate, purchaser, and regulator to ensure that state services meet the needs of the populations it serves in the most effective manner. The Department has five primary functions: Agency Administration and Operations, Community Services and Programs, Medicaid Long-Term Care, Community Grants, and Nutrition Grants. It also administers the Adult Care Home Licensure Act and the survey and certification requirements under contract with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

In FY 2013, the Governor implemented a reorganization of the state's social service agencies to include the transfer of the Community Services and Programs from The Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services and the Health Occupations Credentialing program from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to the Department on Aging, which has been renamed the Department for Aging and Disability Services
