Open Options offers financial assistance to individuals and families in financial need. Individuals with disabilities who reside in the Open Options chartered territory are eligible. The chartered territory includes the counties of Johnson and Wyandotte in Kansas and Clay, Jackson, and Platte counties in Missouri. After exhausting the community resources for financial assistance, or in conjunction with other community financial assistance resources, Open Options may pay for services or items such as:
- Assistive technology that increases a person’s independence and autonomy, including health and equipment supplies, corrective or protective devices, and wheelchair lifts or vehicle adaptations
- Medical or other treatment-related evaluations or consultations to ensure a person’s health and safety, when otherwise not covered by a person’s health coverage.
