Medicaid referendum to be on Nov. ballot in Dane County

Posted: Updated:

 MADISON (WKOW) -- The Dane County Board of Supervisors approved putting a referendum on the November 4th ballot, urging the state to accept federal Medicaid funding.

Wisconsin rejected federal funding last year, but did expand coverage to childless adults.

Board members say the money would help 4,500 people in Dane County get insurance coverage.
