General Assistance Medical Program (GAMP) – The GAMP is a community safety-net system for uninsured residents in MilwaukeeCounty.  To be eligible for coverage an individual must be uninsured and have a family income below 90 percent FPL, depending on family size ($902 for one person).  GAMP covers services such as primary care and clinic services, inpatient and outpatient hospital care. GAMP is funded by state and federal Medicaid revenues as well as MilwaukeeCounty tax levy.   At any given point in time, there are between 7,000 and 10,000 individuals enrolled in GAMP.  The state is planning to incorporate GAMP into BadgerCare Plus in January 2009.
