PROTECT BADGERCARE EXPANSION
Governor Evers’ 2019-21 state budget proposal included $1.6 billion in federal funding to expand Badger Care to cover childless adults, parents, and caretakers with incomes up to 138% of the federal poverty level (about $17,000 per year for a single person working full time). This expansion would enable an estimated 82,000 additional individuals to access affordable healthcare. County-specific fact sheets show how your community would benefit from this funding.
However, the final budget deleted BadgerCare expansion, taking away funding for vital health care services, including mental health care, dental care, services for the disabled and the elderly.
For more information, go to Better Badger Care.
Please take action and call your senator and assembly member and tell them you want to see expansion of Badger Care. Let’s not let politics play games with health care for the most vulnerable among us!
