Delayed by County - Jan-April

 New data from the Legislative Fiscal Bureau on the impact of Medicaid changes on counties all us to present the impact of Walker and the Legislature's plan to delay adding tens of thousands to BadgerCare as promised until April 1st at the earliest. Using the LFB county breakdown methodology we can estimate with some authority where these 83,000 citizens delayed reside.

It is important to remember that this delay in care, making 83,000 wait 3 more months to access BadgerCare did not need to happen! Had Wisconsin accepted the federal Medicaid funds we could have ensured all these and more had access to quality affordable care at the start of 2014, not months into it. That these citizens were needlessly delayed care when it is so easy to do otherwise is a moral outrage that demands correction - take the federal Medicaid funds, say YES to BadgerCare!
