MADISON, Wis. (AP) -
Wisconsin officials say the state has received federal approval to extend a prescription drug assistance program for older residents. The state Department of Health Services said in a statement Monday that SeniorCare helps about 60,000 people each month by reducing prescription costs for low-income state residents who are 65 or older. DHS spokeswoman Claire Yunker says the action from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will allow SeniorCare to operate through 2018.
