Wisconsin has three managed care programs under the umbrella of ForwardHealth that serve specific subsets of the Medicaid population. Wisconsin’s BadgerCare Plus managed care program provides Medicaid services to: parent/caretaker relatives, childless adults with income below 100% of the FPL, and children. There are 15 BadgerCare Plus health plans that operate on a county-by-county basis. Enrollment is mandatory in service areas in which there are two or more health plans, and in rural areas where there is one health plan; if there is only one health plan in a non-rural area, enrollment is optional. The health plans are responsible for providing personalized and coordinated care through a care manager.
