Anthem BCBS expanding Wisconsin marketplace access by nearly 60 counties

Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Wisconsin is expanding Wisconsin Health Care Marketplace access from nine counties to 68 counties in 2023. 

The increased access is the result of collaborative agreements with several healthcare systems throughout the state, including Ascension Wisconsin, ProHealth Care, Children’s Wisconsin, according to an Oct. 17 news release from the payer. 

The payer said in the release the expansion comes at a "critical time as the federal public health emergency, which extended eligibility for Medicaid health plans, is expected by many to come to an end sometime in 2023."

"Should the public health emergency end at some point next year, we expect a number of people to lose coverage through Medicaid," Paul Nobile, president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Wisconsin, said in the release. "But they could be eligible for subsidies to help cover the cost of comprehensive plans through the marketplace. We’re pleased to expand our offerings across Wisconsin."
