The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is urging you to be aware of a potential scam where a person has been calling SeniorCare applicants and members and claiming to represent the Wisconsin Department of Health and Human Services. The caller has been asking for identifying information, such as a Social Security number. If you receive a phone call like this, do not give out any personal information, hang up immediately, and call SeniorCare Customer Service at 1-800-657-2038 or Enrollment Management Central Application Processing Operation (EM CAPO) at 1-877-246-2276.
SeniorCare is a prescription drug assistance program for Wisconsin residents who are 65 years of age or older and meet the enrollment requirements. The program is designed to help seniors with their prescription drug costs.
To enroll in SeniorCare you must:
- Be a Wisconsin resident.
- Be a U.S. citizen or have qualifying immigrant status.
- Be 65 years of age or older.
Every senior enrolling in SeniorCare must pay an annual $30 fee. The earliest you can apply is during the calendar month of your 65th birthday. If you are already age 65 or older, you can apply at any time. Your benefits will begin in the month after you apply.
Your annual income determines your level of coverage in SeniorCare and how much SeniorCare will cover. See the Annual Income Limit table for out-of-pocket expenses and benefits for each level of participation.
