Wisconsin Health Care Options in 2014

Department of Health Services and Office of the Commissioner of Insurance Joint Report: The Wisconsin Health Insurance Market and Wisconsin Entitlement Reforms

On March 31, 2014, the Department of Health Services (DHS) and the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance (OCI) released a joint report on Wisconsin's unique approach for operationalizing the Affordable Care Act and Wisconsin entitlement reforms. 

As of April 1, 2014, all Wisconsin residents will have access to affordable health insurance. Some individuals and families will get health care through Wisconsin's public health care program, BadgerCare Plus, while others will purchase it through the private market, their employer, or through the federal Health Insurance Marketplace.

The week of April 15, 2014, the Department mailed one additional letter to individuals who are no longer eligible for BadgerCare Plus under the new program rules to remind them of their health care coverage options and encourage them to purchase private health insurance through the Marketplace.
