27.3 Income Change Reporting Requirements

BadgerCare Plus members must report income changes when the total monthly income of the assistance group with the highest monthly income amount exceeds the following FPL percentages for their assistance group size:


The income change must be reported by the 10th of the month following the month in which the total income exceeded its previous threshold.


The CARES notice will indicate the dollar amount associated with each FPL level, for the BadgerCare Plus group size.


Example 1: Sally’s countable family income has been at 80% of the FPL since she applied in January. In June her income increased to 107%, so she must report the change by July 10.


Example 2: Heidi’s countable family income is 128% of the FPL. In September it increased to 164% of the FPL. Heidi must report this change by October 10.


Example 3: Steve’s countable family income is 265% of the FPL. In December it increased to 411% of the FPL. Steve must report this change by January 10.
