38.1 Covered Services

A covered service is any health care service that BadgerCare Plus will pay for an eligible member, if billed. The Division of Medicaid Services enrolls qualified health care providers and reimburses them for providing BadgerCare Plus covered services to eligible BadgerCare Plus members. Members may receive BadgerCare Plus services only from enrolled providers, except in medical emergencies.  BadgerCare Plus reimburses emergency medical services necessary to prevent the death or serious impairment of the health of a member even when provided by a non-enrolled provider.
