The purpose of this meeting is to conduct the governmental business outlined in the above agenda. The IRIS Advisory Committee is created by DHS to advise on matters that directly concern the IRIS Program. The Committee is expected to provide input, guidance, and community feedback to DHS to enable them to administer the IRIS Program within the allowances of the waiver and to ensure that it is a cost-effective and sustainable Long Term Care program. The establishment of the committee is referenced in the Wisconsin 1915 (c) Home and Community-Based Services Waiver WI.0484.R02 as authorized by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. More information about the Committee is available at https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/iris/iris-advisory-committee-charter.pdf.
