Kicked off by County

A breakdown of the total number of people impacted by Walker's rejection of federal funds for BadgerCare. Not just those kicked off, but denied access as well

On the day of the State Senate vote on the budget to ensure that it would fly under the radar, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services finally released the long-demanded breakdown of which counties would see individuals forced off of BadgerCare and how many. This list is broken down below.

This also by itself does not even include the numbers of people who should have had access to BadgerCare had Wisconsin accepted the federal funds. We have long featured those numbers on our website. Together they reveal massive numbers of citizens that will continue to struggle to access healthcare when they didn't have to.

Another part that the Walker Administration tried to sneak passed is the fact that the number of people kicked off of BadgerCare that was revealed last week is 10,000 more people than they originally declared it would be! Do they think we wouldn't notice? Or does the Walker administration believe it can play fast and loose with the facts when it pertains to people's lives? Altogether, this decision to reject federal funds for BadgerCare and force people off has consequences across the state. The only solace is that this decision can be overturned at any time, we can reach out and accept these federal dollars for BadgerCare and we must keep fighting to do so.
