AB 445 – Wisconsin

Status: Inactive / Dead
Year Introduced: 2017
Link: https://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/2017/related/proposals/ab445

This bill would create the “Badger Health Benefit Authority” which would establish and operate a Wisconsin Health Benefit Exchange and make qualified health plans available to qualified individuals and employers. It would seek federal grants and other funding for the purpose of the exchange. A qualified health plan in the exchange is a plan that covers the costs of health care services and meets the certification criteria described in the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. After the exchange begins operation, no insurer would be able to offer or issue health benefit coverage in the state to an individual or small employer except through the exchange.
