A TEAM Mobile Unit - Voice Your Choice TOUR is coming......August 4th - August 12th

The time is now to speak out on the Family Care Waiver Renewal Proposal for Home and Community Based Services. This waiver allows states to provide long-term care services in home and community-based settings rather than in institutional settings

Please consider including comments such as…

  1. I want the full array of employment and residential services to be kept intact. Facility-based vocational services must be protected.
  2. The DHS (Department of Health Services) plan is incomplete because CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) hasn't provided states with the sub regulatory guidelines for employment settings.
  3. When the guidelines from CMS arrive, the public should have another 30 days to review and comment.

Use the following links to voice your choice to DHS, State Legislators, and the Governor's Office:

  1. DHS:

    Email: DHSOFCE@dhs.wisconsin.gov, Subject: 1915(c) Waiver Application
