On June 15th, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services began accepting applications for the new Badger Care Plus Core Plan– a public health care plan for low-income adults with no dependent children. Early education professionals with no health insurance available through their employer may be able to take advantage of this opportunity by learning more/applying here. Share this information with your staff (if your) program doesn’t offer health insurance, your fellow early educators, and anyone else you think may qualify. Applicants can call the Enrollment Services Center at 1-800-291-2002 with any questions.
The successful implementation of this program serves as an example of an effective advocacy effort led by a diverse group of advocates that spanned over a number of years.
