Long Term Care Motion

Mental Health Task Force/ Make It Work Milwaukee Update

For those of you following the long term care provisions in the budget (Family Care, IRIS, ADRCs), the Joint Finance Committee is meeting currently and discussing long term care motions advanced by Democrats and Republicans respectively. The attached motion was proposed by Senator Vukmir and Representative Knudson and is expected to pass. The motion includes the major changes proposed by the Governor including elimination of IRIS and requiring MA-funded long-term care consumers to receive both long-term care and acute care services from integrated health agencies.

You can watch the hearing on Wisconsin Eye – got to http://www.wiseye.org/Home.aspx and select Joint Finance Committee. A number of disability and aging groups have issued statements opposing the plan – these are posted on the Wheeler Report at: http://www.thewheelerreport.com/
