WY officials search for options to Affordable Care Act

The Billings Gazette, January 12, 2012

A panel of health insurance experts shared the state's plan to offer alternatives to the American Care Act on Tuesday night, saying that Wyoming needs to create a bottom-up strategy that meets the state's unique challenges. The panel touched on the possibilities and challenges of creating a state-based health insurance exchange to help cover the state's 83,000 uninsured residents. As envisioned, the exchange would serve as a Web-based marketplace to compare the price and quality of health insurance and review the products in everyday language.
