Medicaid and BadgerCare Plus beneficiaries have not needed to take any action to re-enroll in Medicaid to retain health insurance coverage during the past three years of continuous Medicaid eligibility due to the Public Health Emergency. This continuous eligibility ended on March 31, 2023.
In Wisconsin, 1.6 million people will need to renew their state health insurance (Medicaid or BadgerCare Plus) sometime between June 2023 and May 2024. It is estimated by the Kaiser Family Foundation that 300,000 people in Wisconsin may lose their state health coverage and will need to transition to some other form of insurance. About 60 percent of the people losing their coverage will have an option of employer-sponsored health coverage.
Staff from Covering Wisconsin will provide:
- An overview of important information to know and share with your employees
about the upcoming Medicaid and BadgerCare Plus Renewal “Unwinding Period”
- Resources and guidance for your organization as you prepare to assist your
employees in transitioning from Medicaid or BadgerCare Plus health insurance.
- Caroline B. Gómez-Tom, Enrollment Network and Accessibility Manager,
- Adam VanSpankeren, Navigator Program Manager, Covering Wisconsin
