Wisconsin Chronic Disease Program

Wisconsin Chronic Disease Program

The Wisconsin Chronic Disease Program (WCDP) offers assistance to Wisconsin residents with chronic renal disease, hemophilia, and adult cystic fibrosis.

The Wisconsin Chronic Disease Program (WCDP) offers assistance to Wisconsin residents with chronic renal disease, hemophilia, and adult cystic fibrosis. The WCDP is funded entirely by state dollars. The program pays health care providers for disease-related services and supplies provided to certified WCDP participants after all other sources of payment have been exhausted.

Wisconsin Chronic Disease Program members are responsible for certain copayments and annual deductibles determined by the program. Participants whose annual income exceeds 300 percent of the Federal Poverty Level must pay a certain percent of out-of-pocket expense before becoming eligible to receive WCDP benefits. The state seeks repayment of WDDP benefits provided to members under the Estate Recovery Program.

A program of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

The Links To Chronic Kidney Disease Educational DVD

Watch this important educational DVD about chronic kidney disease.

The Links To Chronic Kidney Disease: Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, and Family History educational DVD discusses chronic kidney disease prevention, causes and treatment, and the importance of early detection. Its target audience is people, with or at risk of, diabetes and high blood pressure – the two major causes of chronic kidney disease.

High blood sugar levels associated with poorly controlled diabetes is the leading cause of chronic kidney disease in the United States. Without treatment, people with diabetic kidney disease often progress to kidney failure. Progression of diabetic kidney disease is influenced primarily by blood sugar control and blood pressure control. Early detection of kidney damage and careful blood sugar and blood pressure control reduce the risk of the development and progression of diabetic kidney disease. Watch this DVD to learn more.

DVD created through a partnership with the Wisconsin Diabetes Prevention and Control Program and the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin.
