New Legislation Has Been  Introduced to Protect BadgerCare - Call Your Legislators Now & Ask Them to Sign Onto the BadgerCare Protection Act!

Representative Jon Richards (D-Milwaukee) and Senator Jon Erpenbach  (D-Middleton) introduced the BadgerCare Protection Act today.  The bill is currently being circulated for sponsorship by other legislators.  We need your help contacting those that represent you and ask that they add their name to the list of co-sponsors.

Wisconsin Legislative Hotline: 1-800-362-9472

The BadgerCare Protection Act: 
  • Prohibits the Department of Health Services (DHS) from implementing higher cost sharing requirements and other changes to BadgerCare that will result in tens of thousands of Wisconsin families losing coverage; ·
  • Prohibits DHS from eliminating BadgerCare eligibility for the 53,000 non-disabled, non-pregnant adults who have family incomes between 133% and 200% of the Federal Poverty Level; and ·        
  • Protects BadgerCare by repealing a new corporate tax loophole in Gov. Walker's budget that costs state taxpayers about $40 million annually, without requiring the creation of a single job.
Please call 1-800-362-9472 ASAP to connect to your State Representative and State Senator and to ask them to sign onto the BadgerCare Protection Act.
Thank you!
