Welcome to the Wyoming Hospital Association website!
to the Wyoming Hospital Association's home page.
The Wyoming Hospital Association (WHA) is a member owned, private, non-profit
organization representing Wyoming hospitals. WHA
serves as the voice of Wyoming hospitals before local, state,
regional and national legislative and regulatory bodies, the media
and the general public. While the Association's primary focus
is representation and advocacy for Wyoming hospitals, WHA also
provides data services, educational programs, and a variety of
other membership services.
WHA is a statewide Association dedicated to providing leadership
and representation and advocacy for Wyoming hospitals. The Association
through leadership and collaboration, among all healthcare providers,
promotes information and education that enables Wyoming hospitals
to deliver high quality, adequately financed/cost-effective health
care that is universally accessible to all Wyoming citizens.
This counter provides an up-to-the-minute total of dollars foregone by the state since January 1, 2014.
The State of Wyoming’s decision against expanding Medicaid to cover more residents is costing the state economy millions of dollars each month.
The counter is a conservative estimate of the dollars lost. It uses data from the September 2012 report completed by Milliman, Inc. for the Wyoming Department of Health.
Milliman’s analysis suggested a wide range in the number of possible enrollees. The Wyoming Department of Health picked a number inside that range and has said it expects that about 17,600 people would enroll for coverage under the expansion.
In order to expand communications with members, as well as legislators and the public, the Wyoming Hospital Association has launched a presence on Facebook and Twitter. The WHA’s social media approach will enable it to directly deliver key information on important topics, such as the Medicaid expansion, and when information is moving quickly, such as during the legislative session.Facebook and Twitter also open up WHA communications more broadly to the public, strengthening the WHA’s position as the key source for hospital and healthcare related information in Wyoming. Both social media outlets will be updated regularly, so check them often to stay up with the latest from the WHA, and on healthcare news from around Wyoming.
