WHAT HAPPENS AFTER OBAMACARE OPEN ENROLLMENT ENDS MARCH 31, 2014?
via NewsOne Now

Though the wrinkles are being smoothed out of the insurance sign-up experience on healthcare.gov many people are confused about their options and the upcoming deadlines. Critics say the Obama administration should have done a better job of getting the word out in the months that led up to the launch of the health insurance exchanges on Oct. 1. But Anton Gunn, from the Office of Intergovernmental and External Affairs at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, insists what’s important is that the administration is now getting the messaging right for the people who need it.

via UWM Milwaukee Public Radio


The Washington Post recently created an interactive map that lays out, by zip code, where the nation's richest and most educated populations reside.The Post used 2010 Census data to find 'Super Zips' - the zip codes in the 95th percentile (or higher) when it comes to college educated and wealthy residents. The Milwaukee-area has two such zip codes: Elm Grove and Whitefish Bay/Fox Point/Bayside. However, some nearby zip codes are home to some of the poorest, least educated populations, according to the map.

WALKER REQUEST DELAY FOR HIS OWN MEDICAID REFORMS
via UWM Milwaukee Public Radio

Wisconsin lawmakers will convene in a special session Monday to consider putting state Medicaid reform on a three-month delay. The group, Wisconsin Jobs Now, recently held an event to help people enroll in insurance plans on the online exchange. Gov. Walker is one of 25 Republican governors who rejected federal funds to expand Medicaid. Instead, he changed the state rules. Walker is allowing 82,000 extremely poor adults to enroll in BadgerCare. They were previously locked out, because the state capped enrollment. At the same time, the governor is cancelling coverage for 77,000 childless adults with incomes just above poverty.
