Evers announced the partnership during a state Capitol news conference Monday.

The plan calls for the state Department of Health Services and the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance to work together to educate consumers by informing them about the availability of insurance agents and promoting the use of HealthCare.gov, a federal website with information on the Affordable Care Act.

The agencies will engage with community organizations, health insurance providers and health care systems to strengthen markets and help state residents transition from Medicaid to private coverage. The agencies also will continue to try and convince Republicans who control the Legislature to expand Medicaid, a move they have flatly rejected so far.
