Wisconsin Medicaid and BadgerCare Plus
Renew Your Benefits
Once you are enrolled in Medicaid or BadgerCare Plus, you must complete
a renewal at least once each year. The renewal is to make sure you still
meet all program rules and you are getting the correct benefit. If the
renewal is not done, your benefits will end.
BadgerCare Plus for Families/Medicaid Renewals: There are
many ways to do a renewal. Your renewal can be done online at
ACCESS.wi.gov, by phone,
mail or in person. You will be notified by mail the month before your
renewal is due.
For example, if your renewal is due in April, your letter will be
sent in March. This letter will also tell you how you can do your
Core Plan Renewal: You will be required to pay a non-refundable
processing fee of $60 and to complete a Health Survey. If you are
homeless, a Tribal member or are eligible to get Indian Health Services,
you will not have a fee.
If you owe a premium, the $60 fee will be used to pay your next premium.
In order to avoid a delay in your enrollment and/or a gap in coverage,
you must start the renewal process by the 5th of the month. For example,
if your enrollment ends October 31st, you must submit the renewal by
phone or online at
by October 5th.
