Governor Tony Evers included Citizen Action of Wisconsin’s top three health care budget priorities in this proposed state budget: BadgerCare Expansion, Prescription Drug Affordability Board and A Public Option.
It is critically important that we make our voices heard in support of these lifesaving policies. The Legislature will get pressure from corporations and the wealthy few who benefit from keeping health care costs high, but we can beat them!
We need the Legislature to know how much we care about affordable health coverage and prescription drugs.

BadgerCare Expansion would allow the many people in our community that lost their jobs or had their income affected by the pandemic have the support of health insurance.
Creating a Prescription Drug Affordability Review Board would allow the board to evaluate drug prices for price gouging and excess price increases, increase transparency prescription drug pricing and could even set some limits on how much people should have to pay for expensive drugs.
A Public Option plan would allow people to purchase their health coverage from a public plan. This is the single greatest thing we could do bring down the cost of health care in Wisconsin.
This year, Wisconsin has a chance to pass BadgerCare expansion with a public option, make prescription drugs more affordable, support caregivers, invest in small businesses, and guarantee that every family can get access to quality, affordable child care
When: March 30th from 9AM-11AM Via Zoom
