SB 717 (see companion bill AB 746) – Wisconsin

Status: In Process
Year Introduced: 2023
Link: https://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/2023/proposals/sb717

The bill requires DHS to develop a plan and request federal approval to create a basic health plan that complies with the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The basic health plan must cover individuals whose household income does not exceed 200 percent of the federal poverty line. The ACA allows states to create such a basic health program. This bill directs the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance to establish and operate a state-based health insurance exchange, which must also include access to the ability to enroll in the purchase option for BadgerCare.
