Kansas PBS Medicaid Services

Positive Behavior Support (PBS) is a research-based, person-centered framework focused on decreasing problem behavior and increasing quality of life. At KIPBS we conduct research, provide training from the intensive to the community-wide intervention level, develop resources, and help professionals plan and implement PBS within their organizations.

Individuals under the age of 21 with Title 19 Medicaid and who are KanBeHealthy eligible qualify for PBS services. Parents, care-givers, or professionals who are interested in PBS services for their child should contact their child's MCO for more information regarding providers in your area. For more information on KanBeHealthy eligibility visit https://www.kmap-state-ks.us/Public/Kan Be Healthy Main.asp.
