Lincoln County was created by the Wisconsin Legislature on March 4, 1874, with a population of 895, and land area of 2,750,000 acres. At that time Lincoln County included most of present day Oneida and Vilas Counties, as well as parts of present day Langlade, Taylor, Price and Iron Counties. Lincoln County reached its present size in 1885.

The enrollment period for 2018 coverage runs November 1 - December 15, 2017.

This year Open Enrollment is only 45 days long. For 2018 coverage, consumers need to enroll in or renew their health coverage through the Marketplace before the December 15 deadline.
