Keep in mind that BadgerCare Plus has special rules about
health care benefits for parents whose children are living outside
of the home in Foster Care or court-ordered Kinship Care. To find
out where to apply for these benefits, call the recipient services
hotline at 800-362-3002 and ask for the phone number of your local
county/tribal BadgerCare Plus office.
Child Care also has special rules, for people who are foster
parents, Kinship Care caretakers or subsidized guardians for
children who are living in their home, as well as for people who are
acting in place of a parent in some other way for children living in
their home. You may be able to get help with paying for Child Care
for these children.
You may be able to get W-2 cash assistance even if all
children under 18 are living outside the home.
Of these people, how many are under 19 years old?
We ask this question because people under 19 years old may be
eligible for health care, even if their parents and other people
living in the home are not. For most health-care programs, people
under 19 years old are counted as children. To answer the question,
type in the number of people in your home who are under 19.
