Wisconsin counties get expanded Medicaid funding in state budget

Door County would receive $7-million while Kewaunee County would get $5-million if a proposed expansion of Medicaid is approved in Wisconsin. That's part of the  Department of Human Services budget proposal. That would help the counties expand Medicaid coverage to new clients, maintain aid to current Medicaid recipients, provide additional funding for long-term care and increase funding for physicians.  Each county will be able to decide how to spend that money to administer local Medicaid programs.  Kewaunee County Human Services Director Dana Johnson likes that approach.



Wisconsin's Department of Human Services estimates the $2.6-billion in Medicaid funds will save Wisconsin taxpayers nearly $325-million.
