Consumer Guide to Health Care

We know that there are a lot of choices when it comes to your health care. Searching online for the right information can be like looking for a needle in a haystack.

To make it easy, we've created the Consumer Guide to Health Care. You'll find details about your care options—where to go when, who to see, and what to know. The goal is to give people who live in Wisconsin easy access to useful information. This leads to better health care choices and outcomes.

In this online guide, we offer web pages with advice and links to both state and national organizations and databases.

Health care topics


The Consumer Guide to Health Care responds to Wis. Stat. ch. 153. This requires Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) to write a guide that helps people choose health care providers and plans. The DHS Office of the Secretary makes the guide.
