WHA Applauds Senate Approval of AB 394


Attribute this statement to WHA President/CEO Eric Borgerding:


MADISON (November 6, 2015)
 “Wisconsin’s hospitals and health systems are a key partner with the state in delivering highquality, high-value health care to state employees, retirees and their families. The Wisconsin Hospital Association believes that review by the Joint Finance Committee, including authority to approve or reject a contract for self-funding, is critical in ensuring transparency for all stakeholders, including providers. A fundamental change to the State employee health plan, such as moving to a self-funded model, could pose significant risk to the state’s budget and for Wisconsin’s health care market.

WHA applauds the Senate’s action today and thanks Senator Alberta Darling and Representative John Nygren for their steadfast commitment to this important issue.”
