Today, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-4) applauded the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMS) decision to renew the State of Wisconsin's Family Care waiver agreement. Additionally, she was pleased that CMS upheld the Family Care program and determined that Governor Scott Walker's previous attempt to restrict the program by capping enrollment is an unacceptable violation of the agreement with CMS.
"Family Care is a critical support system for people with disabilities and seniors," said Rep. Gwen Moore. "Family Care's long-term care services include daily support such as assistance with getting dressed, meals, transportation to work, and bathing for eligible seniors and people with disabilities.
"CMS's action helps ensure that eligible individuals will have access to services when they need them and Scott Walker will no longer be able to jeopardize Family Care as he has done in the past."
