WHA Applauds Governor’s Health Care Stability Plan

Federal Government Approves Wisconsin’s Reinsurance Proposal

Statement from Eric Borgerding, President and CEO of the Wisconsin Hospital Association:

“Rising premiums threaten access to affordable health insurance and erode the impressive gains Wisconsin has made over the past four years in reducing the number of uninsured. With solutions from Washington nowhere to be found, WHA has repeatedly called on the Governor and Legislature to strike Wisconsin’s own path and act to stabilize health insurance markets and sustain our gains in coverage. Governor Walker’s Health Care Stability Plan is a crucial step in protecting access to Wisconsin’s top ranked health care. WHA commends the Governor for initiating the stability plan and the many Republicans and Democrats in the Legislature who came together to support this sound, Wisconsin-focused solution."
