Inclusa and Lakeland Care will provide Family Care services in Brown, Door, Kewaunee, Marinette, Menominee, Oconto, and Shawano counties
Effective December 31, 2019, Care Wisconsin will no longer offer Family Care services in Brown, Door Kewaunee, Marinette, Menominee, Oconto, and Shawano counties. Lakeland Care and Inclusa will be the two managed care organizations in those counties beginning January 1, 2020.
Current Family Care members in those counties will continue to receive services and supports to meet their needs. Care Wisconsin will continue to provide services for the rest of 2019, or until members choose another option for their care.
What should I do now?
To remain in the Family Care program, members currently enrolled with Care Wisconsin will need to transition to Inclusa or Lakeland Care by January 1, 2020; or, you may choose to enroll in IRIS (Include, Respect, I Self-Direct), the state’s fully self-directed long-term care program. IRIS service providers available in these counties are TMG, Connections, and Advocates4U.
You will receive one-on-one counseling from your local aging and disability resource center (ADRC) or Tribal Aging and Disability Resource Specialist (ADRS) to help you choose between options based on your preferences. If you wish, you can make an appointment with the ADRC or Tribal ADRS instead of waiting to be contacted by them.
If you have further questions about this transition and what it means for you, more information is available in these frequently asked questions. You can also contact your local ADRC or Tribal ADRS, or the Department of Health Services toll free at 855-885-0287.
