On the ACA Anniversary, Commissioner Afable Recognizes its Impact in Wisconsin
Madison, Wis. – Wisconsin Insurance Commissioner Mark Afable today marked the 11th anniversary of the Affordable Care Act.
“Since the enactment of the ACA, thousands more Wisconsinites have been able to access high quality, affordable health care through the federal marketplace,” said Commissioner Afable. “The ACA removed access barriers for people with pre-existing conditions. It has also allowed our state to develop and implement successful programs like the Wisconsin Healthcare Stability Plan to keep rates down and coverage affordable.”
“Of course, there is more work to be done and I’m grateful that Governor Evers has prioritized health care access in his Badger Bounceback budget,” continued Commissioner Afable, “His budget proposal would build on this success by continuing to fully fund WIHSP and expand the patient protections that exist in the ACA.”
