How to enroll

Anthem serves BadgerCare Plus and Medicaid SSI members.

BadgerCare Plus

BadgerCare Plus is a health insurance program in Wisconsin for pregnant women, children age 19 and under and adults who meet certain income requirements.

Enrollment is year round. If you qualify, you can enroll at any time. The best way to know if you’re eligible is to apply.

There are three ways to apply:

  • Go to  access.wi.gov and click on “Apply for Benefits”
  • Call or visit your local county or tribal Income Maintenance (IM) agency. You can  find your IM agency online or by calling 1-800-362-3002
  • Complete an application and submit by mail

The state will notify you if you are approved. Once approved, you choose the health plan that best meets your needs. If you don’t choose a plan, the state will choose one for you. Call the HMO Enrollment Specialist at 1-800-291-2002 to learn more about how to choose a health plan.

Check your enrollment status right from your smartphone — download the MyACCESS mobile app. Using the MyACCESS app, you can:

  • See the programs you’ve applied for.
  • Get reminders of actions you need to take or proof you need to submit.
  • Take photos and submit needed documents at any time, then check its status in real time.
