11-20-13 health care coverage

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Legislation to extend health coverage for almost 100,000 Wisconsin residents for another three months will be taken up by the Assembly next month. Gov. Scott Walker toughened Medicaid eligibility in the state budget, forcing 77,000 people off the rolls as of Jan. 1. The state's high-risk insurance pool also is slated to disappear on Jan. 1. Walker has called a special legislative session so lawmakers can pass bills extending coverage for the two groups through the end of March.
