The federal government and Wisconsin jointly pay for Wisconsin’s Medicaid program. Medicaid accounts for 43% of federal funds received by Wisconsin, adding almost $5 billion to our state budget. State spending on Medicaid (General Purpose Revenue – or GPR) does not equal even half of federal funds. If Congress approves Medicaid per capita caps, the amount of federal Medicaid funding received by Wisconsin could be cut by up to 25% over 10 years. With cuts of this size, Wisconsin would need to find other revenue, such as state GPR dollars,  to maintain current Medicaid programs and benefits or institute cost-savings measures like reducing provider reimbursement rates, limiting services and benefits, or re-instating waiting lists for programs.

If care about people with disabilities – if you or someone you love is supported by Medicaid, please take action NOW. People from Wisconsin with disabilities are at risk of loosing the services that enable them to live and participate in the community.
