News

The final vote on Family Care will likely take place next week. While there have been some changes, you should also be aware that concerns remain regarding the latest proposal, (see WILTC Coalition 5-15 Memo to JFC).

The Long Term Care Coalition continues to advocate to:
Involve stakeholders in all of the important decisions (including the decisions which appear to have already been made in the announcement, such as the choice of the Integrated Health Agencies model and the decision to phase out the “any willing provider” requirement), and acknowledge the massive stakeholder input from the last 3 months in which constituents have asked the legislature to protect and preserve the things that are working in the current system, i.e. a separate IRIS Medicaid waiver program, a regional system that provides a sustainable path for existing regional homegrown managed care organizations which are meeting DHS requirements, locally-based county-run ADRCs performing all the functions of an ADRC, and the existing Partnership integrated model.

There is still time for you to contact your elected representative and let them know your thoughts on this vitally important issue. If you don’t know who your legislators are, you may call 1-800-362-9472 and ask to confirm your representatives or go to “Find my Legislators” at: http://legis.wisconsin.gov/
