DHS Receives Another Temporary SeniorCare Extension


The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has received another temporary extension for Wisconsin’s SeniorCare Waiver, which will allow the program to continue until the end of March. This is the second extension DHS has received in 2019 for the waiver, which expired at the end of 2018. The 60-day extension comes as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services finalizes its review of DHS’ application for a 10-year extension that would keep the program operating until December of 2028. The review process was delayed due to the recent federal government shutdown. SeniorCare is an income-base prescription drug assistance program for Wisconsin residents who are age 65 and older. About 50,000 seniors in the state currently depend on SeniorCare to help with the cost of prescription drugs.
