What is the cost of Targeted Case Management services?
In most cases, targeted case management services are billed through the individual’s medical card if the individual is eligible for KanCare.

What is a Person-Centered Plan (PCSP)?
A Person-Centered Support Plan (PCSP) is a plan developed by the individual, their family/guardian, friends, support staff, and others that will establish goals for the future. The team gathers assessment information to recommend training areas to improve the skills and knowledge that are necessary to work toward the desired outcomes of the individual’s preferred lifestyle.
Can I receive Targeted Case Management services if I am on the waiting list?
Yes, you can receive Targeted Case Management services while you are on the waiting list. TCM services can be provided to an individual through his or her KanCare medical card, or by paying for the service privately. Case managers can assess the individual’s needs and complete referrals to generate other community services (i.e. assistive technology, vocational rehabilitation services, etc.).
What kind of training, certification, or licensure is required for CLASS case managers?

How will Personal Care services benefit me or my loved one?
Personal Care services, or PCS, are one-on-one supports provided to an individual (child or adult) who lives in their family home. Personal Care services are intended to provide relief for the family and allow the individual to continue to reside in the home. Staff assistance is based on the needs identified in the individual’s Person-Centered Support Plan, but can include assistance in the activities of daily living, medications, accessing medical care, meal planning and preparation, and recreation and leisure activities.
