Persons with limited income/resources may be eligible for programs offered through Medicaid. These programs can help with paying the premiums for Medicare or covering the out of pocket coinsurance left after Medicare pays. There are also programs that can assist with the costs of health care prior to the beneficiary becoming eligible for Medicare.
To get more information about eligibility or applying for these programs go to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Access website. For Wisconsin Medicaid telephone numbers, addresses, and related links for people who are enrolled in a ForwardHealth Medicaid Plan, go to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Medicaid Contact website.
