How to Take Action
If You’re Currently Uninsured
Are you currently uninsured or have you recently lost your health insurance? You may be eligible to apply for commercial health insurance or you may be eligible for Wisconsin’s Medicaid program, BadgerCare Plus.
Most people under age 65 are now required to get health insurance through their employer, through Medicaid or through the Health Insurance Marketplace.
If you do not have insurance, you can find out if you are eligible to enroll in a health insurance plan for the remainder of 2016 by visiting the Health Insurance Marketplace online or by calling 1-800-318-2596.
If You Want to Enroll in a Plan for 2017
Plans and estimated prices for 2017 coverage are available for review and enrollment on healthcare.gov.
