Committed to Making Healthcare Accessible for All​​

Wisconsin Insurance Commissioner Mark Afable released the following statement in support of the Governor's budget:

"Governor Evers' remarks tonight showed his commitment to making healthcare accessible for all," said Commissioner Afable. "By taking steps to create a state-based exchange, Governor Evers is making sure that Wisconsin families can continue to rely on a strong insurance marketplace with even greater transparency and efficiency."​

As chair of the Governor's Prescription Drug Task Force, Deputy Insurance Commissioner Nathan Houdek released the following statement in support of the Governor's budget:

“Last year the Governor's Task Force on Reducing Prescription Drug Prices recommended several policies to make prescription drugs more affordable and accessible. The Governor's budget is an important step toward making those recommendations a reality so that necessary medications are more accessible for everyone. By controlling costs, increasing transparency, strengthening consumer protections, and bolstering programs designed to support Wisconsin's most vulnerable, Governor Evers' budget offers a bold plan to address excessive prescription drug costs."​
