Mark Gordon: Signed legislation extending Wyoming's health insurance pool

WY HB0007: AN ACT relating to insurance; extending the sunset date for the Wyoming health insurance pool; clarifying the types of health insurance to which the pool applies; amending pool eligibility; removing maximum benefit limitations; amending the entities who provide coverage and benefit related recommendations.

Program summary frm Wyoming Department of Insurance: The Wyoming Health Insurance Pool (WHIP) was created by the 1990 Wyoming Legislature to provide health insurance coverage to residents of Wyoming who are denied adequate health insurance. However, due to the ACA, individuals can no longer be denied traditional health insurance due to their existing medical conditions, thus essentially eliminating the need for the Non-Disabled WHIP plan. [The WHIP pools are an alternative to ObamaCare - Ed.]

: Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 28-1-1 on 2/7/2019; Passed House 57-0-3 on 1/24/2019; Signed by Gov. Gordon; assigned Chapter Number 16 on 02/14/2019.
