Family Care, one of the state’s Medicaid long-term care programs, is poised for major changes, as a direct care workforce shortage takes its toll across the state.
For-profit health insurers have either acquired or are seeking to buy some of the nonprofit managed care organizations that administer the program. Meanwhile, providers are pushing to overhaul the way they’re paid. And health officials are in the early stages of seeking feedback on changes as they prepare to ask state and federal policymakers to renew Family Care for another five years.
A Wisconsin Health News virtual panel on Sept. 27 will take a deep dive into what’s shaping the program and its future.
