Rep. Kerkman calls for audit of Family Care

Samantha Kerkman

State Rep. Samantha Kerkman is seeking an audit of a state program that provides long-term care to the elderly and people with physical and developmental disabilities.

Kerkman sent a letter to Sen. Kathleen Vinehout and state Rep. Peter Barca, co-chairs of the Joint Legislative Audit Committee, with her request. Kerkman is a member of the committee. In he request, Kerkman alluded to concerns expressed by providers in her district over contracting under Family Care and its lack of uniformity throughout the state as well as delayed reimbursements to providers.

“I’ve been told that it can take months to be reimbursed,” Kerkman said in the letter.

A press release on the  matter is here and the letter is here.

Kerkman’s district includes most of Western Kenosha County.
