Wisconsin’s BadgerCare Plus Program: Moving Forward on Health Reform Amid a Recession
This fact sheet provides a brief overview of Wisconsin’s BadgerCare Plus Program, a three-year-old initiative that merged the state’s three distinct Medicaid programs for children, parents and pregnant women into a single comprehensive health coverage program. It also expanded eligibility to provide near-universal coverage for children and greater coverage for parents and childless adults. As of April 2010, the program provided coverage to 770,000 state residents, including 445,000 children.
