How to renew

BadgerCare Plus

We don’t want you or your family to be without health care coverage. Keep your benefits by renewing on time. Here’s how:

  1. Check your mail
    You’ll get a reminder letter from the state about one month before the date you need to renew your coverage.
  2. Renew your benefits
    Once you receive your letter, renew your benefits in one of these ways:

If you don’t renew by the date in the letter, you’ll lose your health care benefits. Be sure to renew on time!

Are you a childless adult?

Be sure to take the optional health survey. If premiums apply to you and you have healthy habits, you could lower your monthly premium to as low as $4 per month. To take the survey, call 1-800-291-2002 or log in to the ACCESS website
