Due to the potential spread of the Corona Virus, all SKIL Offices will be closed to visitors and the general public until further notice.

SKIL staff will continue providing services while the offices are closed. Communication, during this time, will take place through phone, email or fax.
If needing to turn in or receive a hire packet and/or other paperwork, we encourage you to send your information by email to your local SKIL office.
When bringing paperwork to SKIL offices during regular business hours, call that office, and someone will come to the door to assist you.

 Thank You for your patience in these extraordinary times!

How can I get a ride when I need to travel locally?

SKIL empowers people to make their own transportation choices. The directory lists telephone numbers that can be called to arrange transportation in the twelve counties in Southeast Kansas. Transportation services that serve only one town or a limited area around the town are listed under their specific communities within the county. Individuals who are adjusting to disabilities are welcome to contact the closest SKIL office for assistance and training in making transportation arrangements.


Is transportation available for medical appointments out of town?

If you have Medicaid, it will pay for medical transportation services of 50 miles or more. Only approved transportation providers qualify for Medicaid payment. Prior approval from Medicaid is required. For a list of the Medicaid approved service providers and prior approval, call 1-800-285-4978.
