Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) Secretary Linda Seemeyer today announced that My Choice Family Care and Care Wisconsin are the managed care organizations selected to serve Family Care members in Dane County, upon certification, along with IRIS (Include, Respect, I Self Direct) consultant agencies that will serve participants in the IRIS program.
This expansion will end the wait list for more than 450 people in Dane County with long-term care needs, including some who will have access to needed long-term care services for the first time.
“This is a major step in expanding Family Care and IRIS statewide, so Wisconsin’s most vulnerable citizens will have access to long-term care programs,” said Secretary Seemeyer. “These programs emphasize person-centered care and self-determination, and they are key to helping people live independently, with their best quality of life.”
