Survival Coalition has released three fact sheets on how increasing the amount of income people can earn to qualify for BadgerCare (Medicaid) health insurance will help people with disabilities and caregivers.
You can access these factsheet’s using the links below :

- Facts on how Medicaid expansion will impact the state economy and budget, private insurance costs, sustainability, and helps support low income workers
Survival Coalition anticipates that a series of infographics on Medicaid expansion will be completed next week. Look for another message from Survival with those images and suggested post language.
