Health Care Options

The Department has been working closely with our community partners, advocates and Regional Enrollment Networks since July 2013 to ensure that Wisconsin residents are able to understand their health care options and take action to secure health care coverage. All Wisconsin residents have access to affordable health insurance. Some individuals and families can get health care coverage 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 Department is committed not only to ensuring that Wisconsin residents learn about their health care options and secure coverage but also providing the information and resources that partners and Regional Enrollment Networks need to assist the public, including frequently asked questions and BadgerCare Plus policy-related trainings; resources for consumers; resources and trainings at other state and federal agencies and organizations; and links to data and reports.
