‘Grinch’ law leaves 80,000 without coverage

Email

BadgerCare recipients have three extra months to sign up for health insurance under a law adopted Thursday by the Wisconsin Senate and signed Friday by Gov. Scott Walker.

“Scrooge wouldn’t have come up with this idea,” Sen. Bob Jauch, D-Poplar, said of the “Grinch” proposal.

The new law leaves more than 80,000 childless adults in what one local insurance agent calls a “black hole.” They’ll be unable to get coverage until April 1.
