Some BadgerCare recipients face deadline

People who are losing their BadgerCare coverage on April 1 are also facing the upcoming deadline to buy health insurance through the federal exchanges.

The cutoff date is March 31.

Terrie Pohjola is part of a group that's drawing attention to the deadline. She says only 10 percent of those BadgerCare recipients, in a local three-county area had asked for help, as of last month. She says they can call the United Way's 211 hotline to be connected with a group that provides assistance.

Through his budget, Governor Walker is shifting about 77,000 people from BadgerCare to the exchanges.
