Wisconsin Submits Request to Extend Waiver for SeniorCare
 
The Department of Health Services recently submitted a formal request to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to renew SeniorCare through 2015.  Since 2002, SeniorCare has provided affordable, comprehensive prescription drug coverage to thousands of Wisconsin seniors.  In the 2011 fiscal year, SeniorCare reduced drug costs by $114 million for Wisconsin Seniors and has proven to be more cost-effective for taxpayers as compared to Medicare Part D.  For more information about SeniorCare please visit www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/seniorcare
