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.
The Department of Health Services is seeking public input from consumers, community partners, and providers at the first of a series of Town Hall Meetings:
Wednesday, March 23, at 1 p.m.
Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC)
2740 W. Mason St., Green Bay, Room SC132
Student Lecture Hall in the Student Center
The purpose of this town hall is for DHS to gather ideas from the public on cost efficiencies, savings, and improved outcomes to the state's Medicaid programs. These ideas will help the Department of Health Services develop plans aimed at improving overall consumer care, streamlining program delivery and stabilizing programs to ensure long-term sustainability.
Those who testify have up to three minutes to share their cost-saving ideas. People also can submit their written testimony at the meeting. DHS can gather ideas on all Medical Assistance programs, including SeniorCare, BadgerCare Plus, Family Care, IRIS (Include, Respect, I
Self-Direct) and other long-term care programs.
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) on or before March 21, 2011.
