Wyoming Medicaid

Bob Beck

Despite a heavy push by hospitals and businesses the Wyoming legislature once again voted down Medicaid Expansion this year.  It means the state will not receive 120-million dollars in federal funds a year to address some 17 thousand people who do not have health care coverage and it will also not help address the millions of dollars of uncompensated care faced by hospitals who are forced to treat those without insurance.  The Legislature’s Joint Health and Labor committee will spend the next several months trying to find a Wyoming solution to these issues without federal dollars.
