Topic: Health/Employment for People with Disabilities
Summary: Through interviews with participants in the Kansas Medicaid Buy-In, the authors examined perceived external influences on the decision to acquire or increase employment by people with disabilities. Two major external barriers were identified: physicians, therapists, and caseworkers had frequently discouraged participants from getting jobs; and participants had difficulty accessing adequate and consistent medical care and/or medications through Medicaid.
