2.4.2 Wisconsin Shares Copayment Types

The Wisconsin Shares copayment types and reductions are as follows:

 

Regular: The regular copayment code will base the copayment on the actual income and family size, and the number of children in subsidized child care. This copayment code is used for W-2, FSET, and employed parents.

 

Foster: The foster copayment code applies $0 copayment reduction to the subsidy amount. This copayment code is used for foster care, subsidized guardianships, and interim caretakers.

 

Kinship: The kinship copayment code applies $0 copayment reduction to the subsidy amount. This copayment code is used for children who are residing with a relative under a court-ordered placement (with or without the Kinship Care payment).

 

Non-Court Ordered: The non-court ordered kinship copayment code applies a copayment that is based on 70% of the federal poverty level instead of the family’s actual income level. This copayment code is used when children are residing with a relative and there is no court order for the child’s placement.

 

Teen Parent: The teen parent copayment code applies a copayment that is based on 70% of the federal poverty level instead of the family’s actual income level. This copayment code is used for teen parents under the age of 20 years and who are enrolled in high school or its equivalent.

 

W-2 Employed: This copayment code applies a copayment based on 70% of the federal poverty level instead of the family’s actual income level. It is used for W-2 participants who move from a W-2 employment position (CSJ, W-2 T, or TEMP placement) to regular employment. This copayment type can be used the first two (2) months of regular employment.

 

Learnfare: The Learnfare copayment code applies $0 copayment reduction to the subsidy amount. This copayment is used for teen parents participating in the Learnfare program due to their custodial parent participating in W-2.
