I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
I have been focused on the Medicaid provision in the Budget Repair Bill. When the subject has come up in conversations, a lot of people assume that they are only referring to the BadgerCare programs. But the Wisconsin Department of Health Services has many other services. Instead of writing about each one, here is a link to DHS Medicaid Programs. http://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/forwardhealth/
My son is enrolled in the Katie Beckett Program. There are other links within the Katie Beckett Program that have an impact on individuals with developmental disabilities.
All of the Medicaid programs are listed under Wisconsin Medicaid.
Under the provision, each and every one of these programs can be affected by the policies set forth by the DHS Secretary as well as Joint Finance.
