Tale of Two States 2016

Healthcare in Wisconsin is dramatically more expensive compared to Minnesota. Wisconsin's costs are inflating faster as well, according to a report by Citizen Action of Wisconsin. Deductibles stayed stagnant in Minnesota but increased by 46 percent in Wisconsin in 2016. The report calls for increased rate review authority, expanding Medicaid to enhance Medicaid funds, and end the sale of substandard non-Affordable Care Act-compliant health plans.
