Under Governor Tony Evers’ proposed budget, completing the Medicaid expansion would provide affordable, accessible healthcare to an estimated 82,000 people in Wisconsin. It would save over $300 million, and the reinvestment of that money in evidence-based health programs would bring $1.6 billion in new federal dollars to Wisconsin and improve quality of care for all Wisconsinites.

Forward Wisconsin will highlight Republican attempts to dismantle the budget and provide Medicaid Expansion supporters with concrete ways to support the expansion in their communities and in the legislature, including opportunities to engage across the state.
