DHS Announces BadgerCare Waiver Town Halls.

By Mental Health Task Force/ Make It Work Milwaukee

The Department of Health Services today announced town hall meetings that will be held around the state as part of the submission process for a new BadgerCare Plus Demonstration Project Waiver. The waiver will allow Wisconsin to provide health care coverage through BadgerCare Plus to all adults with no dependent children between ages 19 and 64 and who have incomes that do not exceed 100% of the federal poverty level.

There will be a Town Hall meeting in Milwaukee on Thursday July 11 at 11 AM at the Radisson Milwaukee West, 2303 North Mayfair Road to provide information about the BadgerCare Plus Demonstration Project Waiver and to collect comments from the public regarding the waiver request. All public comments will be communicated to the United States Department of Health and Human Services as part of the final waiver request. The Department intends to submit the waiver request to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on August 5, 2013.

It will be important to have a great turnout including people with disabilities, advocates and providers to learn about the waiver and to provide comments on what we believe is needed to ensure a strong and effective benefits package and implementation.
