Senator Erpenbach Applauds the SeniorCare Extension
"This is a huge win for our state."
Madison – It was announced last week that the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) notified the Department of Health Services (DHS) that they approved a 10-year extension for the popular and vital SeniorCare prescription drug program. Senator Erpenbach was happy to stand today with Governor Evers at a press conference to celebrate the continuation of this vitally important program.
“This is a huge win for our state. This program provides relief to over 92,000 seniors in Wisconsin, and is vital for ensuring that they can afford and access their medications,” said Senator Erpenbach. “I am happy that seniors across Wisconsin will be able to go to bed tonight without being worried about whether or not they will have this coverage tomorrow.”
