Letter to the Editor
January 26, 2023
We need revenue for our counties’ bills. Medicaid expansion could help us.
We have sixteen Critical Access Hospitals in Wyoming. Crook County has a crucial Critical Access Hospital.
Medicaid expansion is not a freebie giveaway. Medicaid expansion could keep hospitals’ doors open by helping to pay hospitals’ uncollectible debt.
Since Montana passed Medicaid expansion not one Critical Access Hospital has had to close.
Our counties need revenue. House Bill 80 is commonly referred to as Medicaid expansion. Please ask your legislators to vote yes for HB80 Medicaid expansion.
