Gov. Tony Evers on Wednesday called a special session for the Legislature to offer Medicaid to more people in Wisconsin, promising to use $850 million in federal money that would come to the state to pay for an array of economic development projects throughout the state.
President Joe Biden's administration has blocked former Gov. Scott Walker's plan to require some childless adults to work to maintain Medicaid benefits.
Wisconsin could save more than $1.6 billion over the next two years by expanding Medicaid to cover nearly 91,000 additional low-income people, a move Republicans continue to block.
The Wisconsin Legislature's Republican-controlled budget committee voted Tuesday to stand by its decision to reject Gov. Tony Evers' plan to accept federal money for Medicaid, turning down more than $1 billion from the federal government and $324 million wort of state savings.
Gov. Tony Evers is announcing a new partnership between state agencies to enroll more people in health insurance.
Republican lawmakers say a new study bolsters their position against Wisconsin accepting an expansion of the federal Medicaid program.
Gov. Tony Evers, in his first State of the State speech Tuesday, called on the Republican-controlled Legislature to scale back a corporate-tax credit to pay for reducing income taxes, make sacrifices to find a bipartisan transportation plan and work together to bolster spending for schools.
Gov. Tony Evers signed a pair of executive orders Tuesday designed to fulfill his campaign pledge to enable more people to take advantage of health care and insurance.
Democratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers says he will tour the state to make a pitch for expanding Medicaid health coverage in Wisconsin under his first budget plan.
President Donald Trump's administration has rejected Gov. Scott Walker's plan to require drug screening and testing for adults on Medicaid with no dependent children.
Rewriting the rules on health care for the poor, the Trump administration said Thursday it will allow states to require "able-bodied" Medicaid recipients to work, a hotly debated first in the program's half-century history.
A new report says the federal health care law could spell additional tax penalties for Wisconsin businesses with a large number of low-income employees.
