WISCONSIN CONSUMER GUIDE TO HEALTH CARE

"Searching the World Wide Web for health care information can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. The purpose of this guide is to help Wisconsin residents make better health care choices by providing easy access to useful information. To meet this goal, we have identified links to Wisconsin-based organizations and/or databases wherever possible. We have also provided links to the most comprehensive national sites."
