RuthAnn from WI

Coverage-counts.org - Partners - RuthAnn from WI For most of her adult life, Ruthe Ann had insurance through her job. In 2004 her employer stopped providing health insurance and in 2008 Ruthe Ann lost her job.

In 2009 Ruthe Ann was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Because she lacked health insurance, she had to go through Wisconsin's Well Woman program in order to be evaluated and tested. However, this program only provides treatment for women diagnosed with breast and cervical cancer. Because Ruthe Ann was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, she could not receive treatment through the program. Ruthe Ann then applied for and received care through a charity care program at a local hospital for a short time. Ruthe Ann then applied for BadgerCare, Wisconsin's state health care program, but had to wait nearly five months to receive her health insurance card. Shortly after receiving her insurance card, BadgerCare stopped taking new applicants who were not children or pregnant women. RutheAnn is grateful for the charity care and BadgerCare coverage she received.

By expanding Medicaid coverage to all adults living under 138 percent of the federal poverty level, Ruthe Ann would have received care through Medicaid and would not have had to jump through hoops to receive the health coverage she needs.
