Adequate and affordable health insurance coverage is the gateway to health care access, and improving the health of individuals and our community.

While the Affordable Care Act has improved health care coverage and reduced the uninsured rate to 7.2% in Milwaukee county; complex eligibility and enrollment processes call for a community-wide plan to help individuals understand, buy and keep health care coverage.

More than 69,000 of Milwaukee County residents remain uninsured and most are eligible for Medicaid (BadgerCare), or subsidies in the health insurance Marketplace.   Members of the Milwaukee Enrollment Network (MKEN) are working together to facilitate consumer outreach and education, and provide enrollment assistance to residents in our community.

MKEN is a consortium of nearly 100 organizations supporting the enrollment, and re-enrollment of eligible individuals in public or private insurance with a focus on low-income, vulnerable populations. It is co-convened by the Milwaukee Health Care Partnership and Covering Wisconsin.
