Doyle admin looks to overhaul BadgerCare
Wisconsin is making major changes to a medical program designed for the working poor. The overhaul of BadgerCare will be the biggest since the program started in the 1960s.
The BadgerCare Plus initiative aims to combine existing programs and make them more efficient without costing taxpayers more money. The election-year program expansion was endorsed by Democratic Governor Jim Doyle in his annual State of the State address in January.
