The Legislature’s budget committee has voted to delay Medicaid changes in Wisconsin for three months.
Wisconsin lawmakers will convene in a special session Monday to consider putting state Medicaid reform on a three-month delay.
Gov. Walker is asking the Legislature for three more months. He wants to extend the state’s timeline for moving people off BadgerCare and into the federal government’s new private marketplace.
Gov. Walker's initial plan was to withdraw coverage from adults earning more than the poverty level and to refer them to the new federal exchange to buy private coverage.
