CMS Approves Temporary Extension of SeniorCare
Prescription drug assistance program for seniors will continue

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced it is granting a temporary extension of Wisconsin's SeniorCare waiver, which is set to expire at the end of 2018. The temporary extension allows the program to continue as CMS finalizes its review of the application for a long-term extension.

An application was submitted in April of 2018, requesting an extension of the waiver that allowed the SeniorCare Prescription Drug Assistance Program. The current three-year waiver expires December 31, 2018.

The Department of Health Services (DHS) is now requesting a ten-year extension so the state may continue to operate the program through December 31, 2028. View the entire news release. Go to this SeniorCare link to learn more about SeniorCare.
