Wisconsin is a relatively small Midwestern state with a total population of 5.3 million people in 1999, of whom 13.2 percent were age 65 and over. The state's economy is strong and only about 8.5 percent of the total population lives in below the federal poverty level, well below the national average. Wisconsin provides home and community-based services to a substantial number of older people and younger adults with physical disabilities through the Medicaid home health and personal care benefit, a fairly large Medicaid home and community-based services waiver, and some significant state-funded programs.
