Health Care Affects Ag People

Laramie, Wy – The President of the Wyoming Farm Bureau admits that many in her organization worry about health care. A recent study showed that those in the Ag industry were among the most likely not to have health insurance and Farm Bureau President Karen Henry says that is a huge issue. But Henry notes that it is difficult to get babies delivered in specific rural areas in the state. She says this will have implications on agriculture in the future.
Henry says her membership is watching closely what the state does to try and solve the problem. But she adds that people also need to be accountable for such things as preventive medicine and health insurance claims noting that can keep health related costs down.
