Survival Coalition Sees Good News Since Family Care Audit: Program is Sustainable

The Survival Coalition of Wisconsin Disability Organizations, of which Disability Rights Wisconsin is a member, provided testimony at a January 18 hearing of the Legislature’s Joint Audit Committee. Disability advocates say the Department of Health Services had made significant improvements in Family Care and IRIS since an audit was first released in April and that the program is cost-effective and sustainable. They request that the Department move swiftly to remove the caps on long-term care programs like Family Care and IRIS. Read the full testimony here: Survival Coalition to Joint Audit.
