2015-2017 Wisconsin State Budget- What does it mean?

This information just in from the Wisconsin Statewide Survival Coalition:

Now that the budget has been signed into law, what does that mean for Family Care and IRIS? There will be changes to the way Family Care and IRIS operate. These changes will unfold over the course of the next two years. The shift to the new long term care system will happen after the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approves a waiver–which will contain details on the kinds and levels of services offered and how the new program will run.
