Beginning on July 1, 2008 Family Care benefits were available for Waukesha County residents who had been receiving services funded by a Medicaid Waiver program such as the Community Options Program (COP), the Community Integration Program (CIP), or the Brain Injury Waiver (BIW). Managed long-term care includes all the services in the Medicaid Waiver program (CIP, COP, and BIW) and some of the services funded by the Medicaid Forward card. Managed care organizations (MCOs) may also provide additional services.
The ADRC is the single point of access for publicly funded long term care services in Waukesha County. The ADRC will work with Waukesha County Department of Health and Human Services Economic Support staff to determine eligibility for managed long term care services, and provide options counseling to help individuals make cost effective decisions about their long tem care.
