The Oshkosh and Fox Cities community are hosting an important conversation on June 22 about proposed changes to Medicaid that could cut Medicaid funding in Wisconsin by $1 billion over the next 10 years. (Please share this event flyer – Join A Community Conversation in Oshkosh June 22 Flyer )
Whether as a taxpayer, a citizen, a family member or a business owner, proposed Medicaid changes will most likely have a critical impact on you. Medicaid covers many people with disabilities and seniors in our community. It also supports businesses and our local economy.
Medicaid funds programming like Family Care*; IRIS*; speech, occupational and physical therapies in our schools*; autism services*; nursing homes; personal care*; mental health programs*; long-term supports for children with significant disabilities* and more. (*optional services that may be cut.)
