What if I can't afford to get medical care for myself or my children?

BADGERCARE+
If you need help paying for health care for you and your children, Wisconsin’s BadgerCare+ Program may be able to help. BadgerCare+ is part of the Medical Assistance program (Medicaid). It pays for medical care for pregnant women, babies, and children. It covers most babies until they are one year of age, even if the family’s income goes up. Families with health insurance may apply. If you are under-insured and/ or you don’t have health coverage for prenatal care services or the birth of the baby, you may be eligible for BadgerCare+. Eligibility is based on your family’s gross (before taxes) income. This includes income from all sources. There is no asset test. Families with higher incomes may qualify if they have child care, work-related, or medical expenses. Apply for PE online Wisconsin  or Moraine Lake Consortium at 1-888-446-1239.

Family Planning Waiver
This program provides contraceptive (birth control) and related reproductive health care services to eligible women from the age of 15 through 44. Eligibility is based on income.
 The service includes:  
• Routine reproductive health exams and tests
• Pregnancy testing and counseling
• Emergency contraception
• Education and information, including Natural Family Planning
