Inside Wisconsin politics. In just two minutes.
Wisconsin ranks fourth in the nation for highest healthcare costs, impacting consumers and employers alike. Recent data from the Wisconsin Employer Survey shows healthcare costs as a top challenge identified by businesses. WMC’s Senior Director of Workforce, Education and Employment Policy Rachel Ver Velde is featured alongside Walker Forge’s CEO Willard T. Walker, Jr., sharing how healthcare transparency would positively benefit the state’s business community.
A legislative proposal, the Know Your Healthcare Costs Act, seeks to require more transparency from Wisconsin hospitals in alignment with already-enacted federal policies.
WMC is actively encouraging Wisconsin lawmakers to support the Know Your Healthcare Costs Act during this legislative session.
