Wisconsin

Low-Income Women's Access to Family Planning

Wisconsin provides increased access to reproductive-health-care services through a State Plan Amendment (SPA) to its Medicaid program.  The SPA creates a limited-eligibility group, allowing individuals who do not otherwise qualify for the Medicaid program to obtain family-planning services.  The SPA allows the state to cover family-planning services for women and men of childbearing age with family incomes at or below 300 percent of the federal poverty level who are not currently enrolled in Medicaid and do not have any other health insurance.  Additionally, enrollees must be (1) U.S. citizens or persons who meet Medicaid citizenship requirements and (2) Wisconsin residents.

Beneficiaries of family-planning coverage available through the waiver were not required to pay premiums or co-payments for covered services.  Covered services included: family-planning office and pharmacy visits; pap tests; limited laboratory services; sterilization; contraceptives services and supplies; STI testing and treatment; and other services.
