TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) -- Kansas officials have scheduled four meetings next week to discuss how people with disabilities will be affected when they're included in an overhaul of the state's Medicaid program.

The Department for Aging and Disability Services says the meetings are intended for physically and developmentally disabled Kansans, their families and groups that provided services. The sessions will give those parties a chance to ask questions about the overhaul.

The meetings are Sept. 23 at Fort Hays State University, Sept. 24 at Wichita State University, Sept. 25 at Parsons High School and Sept. 26 at Olathe City Hall.

Kansas has already turned over most of its $3 billion-a-year Medicaid program to three private health insurance companies. But in-home services for the disabled won't be included until January.
