MADISON--If you've got questions about all of the current health insurance changes, you're not alone. The good news: there's help available. We've put together a simple list of places to start.
If you're newly eligible for BadgerCare--or are being booted from the program--you'll want to start with the Capital Consortium Call Center. They can be reached at 1-888-794-5556. They're prepared to help you with your BadgerCare questions. For those of you losing BadgerCare coverage and heading to the Affordable Care Act marketplace, they can help point you in the right direction.
For those of you directed to the marketplace--and those of you who don't have insurance--you can get your marketplace questions answered in a couple of places. One is this federal hotline number: 1-800-318-2596. The other is the website healthcare.gov.
Additionally, help will be available at the Dane County Job Center starting in October.
