For over thirty years, Group Health Cooperative of Eau Claire has provided coverage to
Medicaid Managed Care (Badgercare and SSI) members in Western Wisconsin. For a portion of
that time, we have also covered members through an agreement with Compcare. Effective
January 1, 2018, Compcare as a Badgercare/Medicaid HMO will come to an end. The Department
of Health Services (DHS) has informed us that Compcare members will be given an opportunity
to choose their HMO from one of the remaining HMO’s in their county of residence (including
Group Health Cooperative of Eau Claire).
The administration and adjudication of Compcare claims for services prior to 1-1-2018 will
continue to be the same. Prior to providing services to former Compcare members after
12-31-2017, please check the ForwardHealth portal to determine health plan eligibility.
This change does not affect Badgercare, SSI or commercial members covered by Group Health
Cooperative of Eau Claire. Group Health Cooperative of Eau Claire will continue to provide
locally-administered coverage and coordination of services to our Badgercare, SSI, and
commercial members. We proudly continue to serve Western Wisconsin as the only local,
non-profit, member-governed health plan option.
Please feel free to contact our Provider Services department at 866-563-3020 with any questions.
