Today, Governor Walker announced that the federal government has approved Wisconsin’s plan to create a reinsurance program to help stabilize Wisconsin’s individual health insurance market. Cathy Mahaffey, CEO of Common Ground Healthcare Cooperative (CGHC), issued the following statement on the governor’s announcement:

“I applaud Governor Walker for his efforts to improve the market for individuals and families buying health insurance on their own,” Mahaffey said. “This will have a positive impact on premiums for our members, particularly those that have suffered high premium increases resulting from the volatility of the market and unanticipated changes to the Affordable Care Act.”
