Creation of Wisconsin Office of Health Care Reform

On April 7, 2010 Governor Doyle signed an order creating the Office of Health Care Reform to oversee implementation of national health care reform in Wisconsin. The office will be co-chaired by Wisconsin Secretary of Health Services Karen Timberlake and Wisconsin Insurance Commissioner Sean Dilweg. The office will develop a plan that uses national health care reform to build on Wisconsin’s successful efforts and existing programs and ensures that Wisconsin’s residents and businesses realize the benefits of national health care reform. The state also created a new website, , to give residents information on how the changes in health care will affect them.
