Wisconsin has three managed care programs under the umbrella of ForwardHealth that serve specific subsets of the Medicaid population. The state describes the Medicaid SSI program as mandatory managed care; however, the program is effectively optional. Persons with chronic conditions, high-risk pregnancies, or continuity of care issues may request exemption from enrollment. As of October 2018, only 24% of the elderly, blind, and disabled population was enrolled. Individuals in the Wisconsin Medicaid SSI managed care program receive all state plan services through one of eight health plans.
