Topic: Health (Health services for children)

Type: Report

Coverage: Wisconsin


In this report, Families USA estimates how much new funding Wisconsin could receive for BadgerCare (Wisconsin's SCHIP/Medicaid program for children and families) if SCHIP is reauthorized with the full $50 billion in new federal funds. We also examine the effect this new money will have on Wisconsin's economy, measured in increased business activity, jobs, and wages. We found that, for a whole host of economic reasons, fully funding SCHIP in accordance with the budget resolution will be good for Wisconsin.
