Medical Assistance (MA) is Wisconsin’s name for the federal Medicaid program, created under Title 19 of the federal Social Security Act in 1965. MA is an entitlement program that funds a wide range of health and care services for certain low-income individuals, and is commonly also referred to as "Medicaid" or "Title 19." Family Care is a program funded through the state’s MA system. Medicare is the federally-funded program that provides health care coverage for nearly all people over the age of 65 regardless of income, for some people under age 65 who have disabilities, and for people with end-stage renal disease. more
