Wisconsin’s Medicaid program has been tasked with generating $625 million in savings over the next two years, to help battle Wisconsin’s $6.6 billion budget deficit for the 2009-2011 biennium. The Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services convened advisory groups to help identify savings measures and ways to improve the Medicaid health care service delivery. In that effort, the Department is soliciting comments and suggestions to restructure the Medicaid managed care delivery system in southeast Wisconsin, including Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha, Ozaukee, Washington and Waukesha counties. Comments and suggestions can be made online by clicking here through September 11, 2009.
