IRIS ? CAN we keep the same SHC people?
Wisconsin Long Term Care Redesign: Questions & Comments
I totally understand your fears, April. So much is up in the air right now.
The bottom line is that we aren't sure what's going to happen. There is information about what's in the Governor's budget proposal, but that can change before the budget actually gets signed. So we are a long way from having the programs change.
In the meantime, you can learn all you can about what's in the proposal. Tomorrow, we are having an online chat (Coffee Break) with Lynn Breedlove, the Board president for InControl Wisconsin. He is going to answer questions that people have about the proposal. You will need to be signed in on this website in order to see the chat. You can choose to ask questions or to just watch what other people are asking and saying. Once you are signed in, just go to this page at 9 am. The Coffee Break will last until 9:30 am.
Another way to learn more is to go to the Budget Trainingsthat are being put on around the state. There is no cost to attend these. Probably the closest trainings for you are in Oshkosh on March 6th and in Milwaukee on March 12th.
In the meantime, know that you are not alone... there are a lot of people who are concerned about the possible changes that may take place. Thanks for reaching out through the Self-Determination Network.
