Ask Your Legislator to Take Action on LogistiCare
If you have concerns about LogistiCare, contact your legislator and ask for an audit!
Many people with disabilities across Wisconsin have expressed concern about LogistiCare - the state’s new Non-Emergency Medical Transportation contract. Now people with concerns have an opportunity to ask their legislators to take action.
LogistiCare is used by many people with disabilities who live in Wisconsin and are on Medicaid programs. This service is intended to help people get to their medical appointments, including regular check-ups, dialysis, and other lifesaving and life-improving treatments. Since the contract began, there have been numerous reports of individuals who have not received service because:
- LogistiCare has said there are no providers available,
- there are difficulties in scheduling trips, or
- the ride arrives too late or not at all, so an appointment is missed altogether.
If you have had a personal experience with LogistiCare or have concerns about this service, share your story with your legislator and ask them to sign on to a letter requesting an audit of the LogistiCare contract. An audit can help determine where people can go when they have problems and ensure the program is running in a cost-effective way that meets people’s needs.
Contact your legislator now! Legislators must take action and sign on to the audit request by September 19. Find out who your legislator is and how to contact them.
