Report: Badger Care Plus Basic in Good Shape
You've probably heard at one point or another that government run healthcare is a train wreck. But that doesn't appear to be the case with a relatively new state health program in Wisconsin. The Badger Care Plus Basic plan starting enrolling people in the summer. The plan covers about 35 hundred in the state now. It's a very basic health plan that costs about $130 a month and offers a set number of doctor visits, hospital stays and generic drug coverage. A new report from the Department of Health Services today says the plan is not only solvent but has taken in twice as much in premiums than it has paid out. The health department says the plan is self-funded and doesn't use taxpayer dollars.
