State workers begin paying 10% of their medical bill, part of budget repair bill

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin state workers and their families started paying more for their medical care starting yesterday. The changes in the state health plan require 183,000 participants to contribute up to 10% of their bills for doctor visits, tests, surgeries and hospitalizations. Though the changes have been explained, plan administrators say they expect to get a lot of questions when those workers have to cover those additional expenses. The changes are part of a so-called budget repair bill that triggered weeks of huge demonstrations at the Capitol before it was passed by the Legislature and signed by Governor Walker.
