Local long-term care organizations plan merger

In Wisconsin, there are six managed care organizations overseeing the long-term care of frail elderly people and adults with disabilities. Two of them, Care Wisconsin Madison and My Choice Family Care of Wauwatosa, plan to merge in early 2020. The merger is subject to regulatory approval.

In May, the Wisconsin State Journal reported that the six entities had lost nearly $11 million in 2018 due to “new enrollees in Dane County and northeast Wisconsin, among the last parts of the state to join Family Care as required under a 2015 law.”
