Medical Assistance

The Medical Assistance program provides medical coverage for individuals with low incomes and little to no assets.

  • Medical Assistance is the last resort and will pay for medical expenses only after other sources of payment, for example, Medicare and private insurance, have been exhausted.
  • Medical Assistance is a needs based program with specific and strict eligibility rules.
  • Wisconsin is a SSI state which means that if you qualify for federal Supplemental Security Income benefits you are automatically entitled to medical assistance benefits.
