WHCA/WiCAL Political Action Committee: Contribute Today for the Future of LTC!

The last several years have brought unprecedented challenges to the long-term care sector. Through it all, providers have shown devotion and resiliency in the face of incredible difficulties. Long-term care providers on the frontlines deserve a lifetime of gratitude and respect.

Despite great challenges, we as a provider community have achieved many public policy and funding successes, including two successful state budget cycles in which policymakers invested:

  • Nearly $450 million in state and federal funds for skilled nursing facilities, including new payment standards for the Direct Care-Nursing and Support Services cost centers at the median + 25% (75th percentile).
  • $368 million in new spending for Family Care providers, including $143 million for the Direct Care Workforce Fund.

As we turn to the 2024 elections, LTC providers must ensure we have a seat at the table for important discussions about the future of healthcare in Wisconsin. WHCA/WiCAL has succeeded in raising our platform with key decisionmakers, and we believe our increased campaign support for those policymakers who support LTC has been an integral part of our political outreach successes.

You have seen first-hand the importance of the Association’s advocacy. WHCA/WiCAL’s political giving plays a pivotal role in advocacy efforts for the LTC provider community, and that advocacy is critical as we look to achieve ongoing budget success so providers can not only survive, but thrive.

Thank you for all you do, and for your consideration of our request. Together, we can continue to build for the future of LTC in Wisconsin!
