2019 Act 88 will increase access to mental health services for WI children

On February 5th, Governor Evers signed into law 2019 Wisconsin Act 88, which ensures reimbursement for clinical consultations with a parent on behalf of a student under the age of 21 in the Medicaid program. DRW’s Phyllis Greenberger has been a part of efforts to add consultation as a Medicaid benefit for children, and attended the bill signing today. These consultation services help to increase access to mental health services for Wisconsin children.
