Below is a list of initial requirements, regulated by the State of Wisconsin, for eligibility within Family Care. You must be an adult living in one of the counties served by My Choice*, AND be:
- 65 or older and in need of supportive services
- 18 or older with a physical disability
- 18 or older with a developmental/intellectual disability
Individuals must also be financially eligible for Medicaid, and be functionally eligible as determined by the Wisconsin Adult Long-Term Care Functional Screening. To enroll in this program, you must begin at your local Aging and Disability Resource Center, where you will learn about all your possible options and get information on starting your application.
*Please note: There are certain circumstances in which a person can be a “legal resident” of one county but actually reside in another county. Please call (414) 287-7600 and ask to speak to our Associate General Counsel for more information about this issue. You may also read this memo for more information.
