Health Organizations for Milwaukee County BadgerCare Referendum

This Thursday July 10th, numerous organizations directly involved in issues of health care, health policy and social service will announce their support for an advisory referendum passed by the Milwaukee county board on accepting federal funds for BadgerCare. This question, “Shall the next State Legislature accept all available federal funds for BadgerCare to ensure that thousands of Wisconsin citizens have access to affordable health coverage?”,  will go before voters on Milwaukee county’s November ballot, and will also be asked in similar fashion in Eau Claire, Dunn and Outagamie counties.

This referendum will give the citizens a chance to directly weigh in on an issue that is of great moral and fiscal concern. Thousands are currently being denied BadgerCare but these federal dollars can be accepted at any time!

The organizations that are in support include:

  • Black Health Coalition of Wisconsin

  • Community Advocates Public Policy Institute

  • Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin

  • Reproductive Justice Collective

  • Center for Quality Community Life

  • SEIU Healthcare Wisconsin

  • Wisconsin Breast Cancer Coalition

  • Citizen Action of Wisconsin

  • Wisconsin Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals

  • National Alliance on Mental Illness Wisconsin

  • Mental Health America of Wisconsin

  • Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Americans

  • National Association of Social Workers, Wisconsin Chapter
