Personal Assistant Service Systems
Click here for PCA TimesheetsIndependence, Inc. provides business management services for eligible persons with disabilities desiring to direct their own personal care attendant services under the Kansas Medicaid HCBS Waiver Program. Business management includes: preparation of semi-monthly paychecks; filling of related payroll returns and W-2's; filing taxes including unemployment insurance and worker's compensation coverage.
You hire, train, and supervise your own personal care attendants and have them complete time sheets which are sent to Independence, Inc. twice monthly for processing. PCAs are paid at an hourly rate of $8.25 to $9.50 per hour. The Independence Living Counselor/Case Manager (ILC/CM) will determine the number of hours per day you are eligible to employ attendants. You are reimbursed for advertising up to twice a year.
To determine eligibility, contact your SRS office, and speak with the Economic Assistance Worker for the PD Waiver (if you are under 65), your Area Agency on Aging for the FE Waiver (if you are 65 or older), or your Case Manager (if you are on the MR/DD Waiver). The ILC/CM then contacts Independence, Inc. which in turn contacts you to set up a time to meet and complete the necessary paperwork.
Refund Policy: Refunds will be thoughtfully considered on a case-by-case basis, butplease note that all donations represent an irrevocable gift to Independence, Inc. Thank you for your support!
