WISe VIDEO OVERVIEW

THE HISTORY OF WISe

Washington State’s Wraparound with Intensive Services (WISe) began implementation in 2014 as a result of the T.R. et al. v. Kevin Quigley and Dorothy Teeter Settlement AgreementWISe is designed to provide intensive support and services to assist youth and families in achieving wellness and safety, and to strengthen communities. WISe uses a team-based approach to providing services, and is available to youth under age 21 who are eligible for Medicaid. The goal of WISe is for eligible youth to live and thrive in their homes and communities, as well as to avoid or reduce costly and disruptive out-of-home placements.

WISe is now statewide as of June 30, 2018. The purpose of this program is to assist in maintaining consistency across Washington State’s service-delivery system for providing intensive mental health services, in home and community settings, to Medicaid eligible youth.
