The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has received formal approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to renew the SeniorCare Waiver through December 31, 2018. The SeniorCare program will continue to operate as it does today. Current SeniorCare members will continue to be enrolled in the program as long as they reapply each year, meet the eligibility requirements, and pay the $30 annual fee.
SeniorCare is Wisconsin's Prescription Drug Assistance Program for Wisconsin residents who are 65 years of age or older and who meet enrollment rules.
