The Wisconsin Assembly has passed a bill regarding BadgerCare and Medicare to extend coverage for those who are currently on it for 90 days. 50th District Representative Ed Brooks, a Republican from Reedsburg, says that the Assembly made a “good faith agreement” just in case the Affordable Care Act was not ready to go. “Right now, people at poverty level will be able to apply for and get on BadgerCare. Those who were on BadgerCare at poverty level and slightly above, they would be moved to the Affordable Care Act,” said Brooks. Brooks also says there are ways that those who have very low income can apply for a reduce premium on the Affordable Care Act. Before the bill can go into effect, the Senate will have to approve the bill the Assembly passed. If it does, the bill will go before Governor Scott Walker for his signature. The Senate will meet in special session on Thursday.
