BadgerCare Plus

Children in Wisconsin, dependent upon their income levels, can enroll in BadgerCare Plus at a price that is affordable to their families. BadgerCare Plus allows every Wisconsin family, regardless of their income, to have access to affordable, comprehensive health care coverage for their kids.

  • In addition, BadgerCare Plus covers parents and caretakers at income levels up to 100% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL)—which is $1674.17 per month for a family of 3;
  • Parents with incomes up to 100% FPL who have kids in foster care;
  • Pregnant women with income up to 300% FPL;
  • More self-employed and farm families; and,
  • Young adults who are leaving foster care when they turn 18, regardless of income.

Low-income families can enroll their children in BadgerCare Plus at no charge. Co-payments for health care services prescriptions range from $0.50 to $3.00 for families with lower incomes. Families with higher incomes will be required to pay reasonable monthly premiums and co-payments for certain services.
