Information About Enrolling in Medicaid

Attention: BadgerCare Plus and Medicaid Members

Keep Your Coverage!

BadgerCare Plus and Medicaid have special rules during the COVID-19 emergency. Let's work together so you'll still have health insurance benefits when the emergency ends. 

Here are the next steps: 

1. Update your contact info

Make sure the Wisconsin Department of Health Services has your current address, phone, and email so they can send you important changes about your coverage. Log in at www.access.wi.gov.

2. Open your mail 

Read any letters you get from the Wisconsin Department of Health Servies and your HMO to find out how these changes will affect you.

3. Take action

Don't miss key deadlines! The letters will tell you what you need to do to get continued benefits.
