Healthcare Programs

The Northern Consortium is comprised of specialized staff to work with a client’s individual needs. Our economic support specialists work in teams to process new applications, renew your benefits, and answer questions throughout the year.

The healthcare programs offered are also specialized dependent on an individual’s needs. For example, a family may have a different healthcare benefit than a disabled adult. And a disabled adult may have different benefits than a disabled child. Our priority is to ensure that our clients receive the best, most up-to-date information possible.

If you are an individual under age 65 or family with questions about our healthcare programs, check out our BadgerCare Plus link below! If you have questions about the Affordable Care Act, check it out in our other resources.

If you are an individual with a disability or than 64 years of age, or a caregiver for a person with a disability, please click both the Elderly, Blind, and Disabled as well as the Aging and Disability Resource Center links below!

While the COVID-19 public health emergency continues, so do your BadgerCare Plus or Medicaid benefits.
