Wisconsin may become more aggressive at pursuing the assets of people who were on Medicaid.
Wisconsin has asked for permission from the federal government to change its health care program for the poor – BadgerCare Plus. Wednesday, leaders will hold the first of three town hall meetings to explain the changes.
In February, when Walker administration outlined its plan to change the Medicaid program in Wisconsin, it estimated the additional cost at $664 million during the next two-year state budget.
Now, the Legislative Fiscal Bureau puts the likely total at $734 million.
