If the child meets the Katie Beckett Program eligibility criteria, which is determined through the application review process, then the child will receive a ForwardHealth Medicaid card. This card can be used to pay for medically necessary services and equipment allowed under the Wisconsin Medicaid program.
All rules and benefits for card-covered services for the Wisconsin Medicaid program apply to children who receive their card through the Katie Beckett Program. The Division of Medicaid Services (DMS) administers the Medicaid program, and ForwardHealth is responsible for ongoing assistance to families regarding coverage and benefit questions. Their Member Services toll-free number is 800-362-3002.
