There are 215 days left until October 1, 2013, when enrollment in the Wisconsin Marketplace will begin. Seven months may sound like a long way off, but the implementation process is still roaring behind the scenes. States are now applying for federal grant money in order to train Navigators and get the word out so people newly eligible for Medicaid or subsidies in the Marketplace are aware of their options.
We are currently waiting for the Wisconsin Legislature to solidify the budget the Governor released last week, so details on Medicaid eligibility still need clarification. However, we do know that people will need to be educated and aware of the changes to insurance options by the end of the year – so help us do so by sharing this “What’s Happening with the Affordable Care Act in Wisconsin” fact sheet. It’s a great way to get caught up on how the law works and where implementation is going in Wisconsin.
