The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) is seeking public comment to extend the current Section 1115 Demonstration Waiver, known as the BadgerCare Reform Demonstration Waiver. Learn more about the extension request, including public hearings, how to access or request waiver documents, and how to submit comments.
Starting in January 2018, in order to provide high quality care for adult Wisconsin Medicaid members, certain Supplemental Security Income (SSI) members must enroll in an HMO of the member’s choice. Members who do not choose an HMO will have one chosen for them. HMO enrollment will be done by region with the last region enrolling by June 2018. Learn more about the HMO enrollment changes for Medicaid SSI members.
