Wisconsin's Funeral and Cemetery Aids Program may
reimburse providers for up
to $1,500 of unmet funeral/burial expenses and up to $1,000 of unmet
cemetery/crematory expenses for certain decedents that were enrolled in
any of these programs:
If the decedent was not enrolled in any of these
programs, he or she may still qualify if, at the time of death or due to
the cause of death, he or she was Medicaid-eligible.
These "posthumous" applications for Medicaid and for
Funeral Assistance must be made through the county. When you speak with
the county, you must say that you want to complete an "EBD MADA"
Contact the local agency to complete the application.
*Note: The Reimbursement Request should
only be completed by funeral directors or their staff.

eligibility about specific decedents by calling
