53,000 Wisconsinites could lose health coverage

Tens of thousands of Wisconsin residents could be forced off a state health program in July, following a statement by federal officials Friday that they likely won’t sign off in time on proposed health care cuts by Gov. Scott Walker.

On Friday, President Barack Obama’s administration gave preliminary approval to some state proposals to cut more than a half-billion dollars from health programs such as BadgerCare Plus but said they wouldn’t be able to decide on other aspects of the plan until next year.
