About the Consumer Guide to Health Care


Searching the web for health care information can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. The purpose of this guide is to help Wisconsin residents make better health care choices by providing easy access to useful information. To meet this goal, we have identified links to Wisconsin-based organizations and databases wherever possible. Links are also provided to the most comprehensive national sites. Over time, we hope to continue to expand access to Wisconsin-specific data and organizations.


The Consumer Guide to Health Care was developed in response to a mandate in Chapter 153, Wisconsin Statutes, which required the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) to produce a guide to assist consumers in choosing health care providers and plans. The Guide is produced by the Office of the Secretary in the Department of Health Services.
