Should I Apply for SeniorCare?
ACCESS, an online tool, can
help you decide if you should apply for SeniorCare. This is a quick and easy
way for people who live in Wisconsin to find out if they may be able to get
help with buying prescription drugs. It will also tell you if it looks like
you may be able to enroll in other health and nutrition programs.
ACCESS will ask you some simple questions about yourself, the money you receive,
your housing costs and a few other bills. Based on the information you provide,
ACCESS will give you an idea of whether you are able to enroll in
SeniorCare. It will
provide information on what kind of out-of-pocket expenses you might have to pay
and what benefits you would receive. You may print out your results and a
SeniorCare application that can be completed and mailed in to apply.
Before you start, you may want to assemble some information about your income
information, which may include Social Security payments, pensions, earnings
from a job or self-employment, or dividends and interest. The type of documents
that may assist you include your pay stubs, last year’s tax return, Social
Security Benefit statement, IRS form 1099s or other income documents.
Please keep in mind that ACCESS is just a test to see if you might be able to
get benefits. You’ll have to apply for SeniorCare to get a final decision about
benefits, but we’ll let you know how to do that.
To see if you may be able to enroll in SeniorCare, go to access.wi.gov
