Government programs can be confusing and complex. The ADRC's Benefit Specialists are here to help clients better understand and navigate such programs as Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Foodshare, and provide information on legal, housing and other options, as applicable.
We help cut through the "red tape" by providing information on program eligibility, how to apply and how to address denials, at no cost to the client. Elder Benefit Specialists assist those 60 and over, and Disability Benefit Specialists assist those between 17 years 6 months and 59.
Some programs that Benefit Specialists can assist with may include, but are not limited to:
- Medicaid (Medical Assistance)
- Social Security
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Low-income subsidy
- Housing & utility issues
Please Call Ahead for Benefit Specialist Appointments
To continue to provide efficient and prompt service to as many clients as possible, we encourage people to call the ADRC at 715-479-3625 or 1-800-374-1123 to make an appointment before coming to the office to see the Elder or Disability Benefit Specialists. This will prevent anyone from having to wait if staff are unavailable, and will help us assist people in a more confidential and timely manner.
