BadgerCare Plus Core Plan Enrollment Suspended

The BadgerCare Plus Core Plan, which opened enrollment to provide health insurance for adults without children meeting certain income and residency requirements, has received nearly 60,000 applications for the plan since beginning on June 15, 2009. The federal government approved this plan with the condition that it be cost neutral and enrollment not exceed the budgeted amount of 54,000 participants. Starting at noon on October 9, enrollment will be suspended; however, individuals may still apply but will be put on a waitlist.
