The Department of Health Services is seeking input from community partners, stakeholders and participants in the SeniorCare program on a draft request to renew the program.
“SeniorCare is successful and has substantial support in Wisconsin. We propose keeping the program in its current form,” said Department of Health Services Deputy Secretary Kitty Rhoades. “Once we take a look at all of the comments received, we’ll draft the final request and ask the federal government to renew the program through 2015.”
A town hall meeting to solicit feedback on the proposal will be Friday, July 13, from 10 a.m.-noon in the County Board Room at the St. Croix County Government Center. Individuals who are interested in speaking will have up to five minutes to share their comments at the forums. Those who would like to share their input and do not wish to speak are encouraged to submit their written feedback at the meeting or through the Department’s online form at www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/seniorcare/input.
People needing special accommodations to attend or participate in the meeting should notify the Department of Health Services at (608) 266-9622 (TTY 888-701-1250) by the day prior to the event.
