Don’t Risk a Gap in Your BadgerCare Plus and Medicaid Coverage.

Get ready for the changes coming in 2023.


Special rules were put in place during the COVID-19 emergency to allow more people to get and keep BadgerCare Plus and Medicaid benefits. In normal times, Wisconsin reviews information provided by members and renews their participation in Medicaid if they still qualify. However, using authority provided by the federal government because of COVID-19, states are not removing anyone from any Medicaid programs during the emergency, even if they have reported changes that mean they no longer qualify.

In anticipation of the emergency ending in 2023, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) is preparing to “unwind” the special rules and resume the renewal process that was in place before COVID-19. 

Do you get Medicaid or BadgerCare Plus benefits? Don’t miss out on changes coming in 2023.

Here’s what to do to make sure you get important information about how to renew your coverage when the emergency ends. 

  • Update your address, phone, and email so changes about your coverage reach you. Log in at or contact your local agency.

  • Open and read your mail. Watch for a letter from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services to find out what’s changing and how changes will affect you.

  • Take action by the deadline. The letter will tell you what you need to do to keep your benefits.
