MADISON — Wisconsin health care advocates want Gov. Scott Walker to say what will happen with 77,000 adults being shifted off Medicaid if they are not able to get coverage through the new health insurance exchange.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports Friday (http://tiny.cc/nvl85w ) that advocacy groups sent Walker a letter this week expressing their concern.

Walker said in February that adults on Medicaid, or BadgerCare, who make more than the poverty level will have to switch to insurance on the federal exchange Jan. 1. The deadline to enroll on the exchange for coverage by then is Dec. 15.

But the federal website has been plagued with problems.

A state Department of Health Services spokeswoman says the goal is to get people signed up by the deadline so they have uninterrupted coverage.
