PRESS RELEASE: Governor Doyle statement on BadgerCare Basic
MADISON (PRESS RELEASE)-- Governor Jim Doyle today issued the following statement regarding BadgerCare Basic after the Legislature passed the bill and sent it to the Governor's desk.
"BadgerCare Plus Basic is an important program that will provide access to basic, stripped down health care to nearly 40,000 people who really need it, at absolutely no cost to taxpayers. This is not a Cadillac plan, and the program will be entirely paid for by those who use it. Basic coverage can be the difference between having protection while you try and get your feet back on the ground and going bankrupt trying to pay for medical care."
