SeniorCare Enrollment Surges

By  | 

Wisconsin SeniorCare enrollment is up in recent months.
Officials at the Department of Health and Family Services say they're receiving more than 175 new applications each day. That's a 150 percent increase from last year.
The program's renewal was uncertain a couple months ago until Governor Doyle negotiated a deal with the federal government.
It allows seniors to choose between SeniorCare and Medicare Part D, at least until June 2007.
SeniorCare is a prescription drug benefit that's based upon a person's annual income.
Around 90,000 seniors are currently enrolled in the program.
