IMPORTANT NOTICE: Unfortunately, due to projections of significantly reduced state revenues and the need for state general fund budget reductions across all agencies, the department is suspending this program. We will re-evaluate our ability to stand up this program in fall 2020, following the preparation of the department’s supplemental budget for the 2021-2022 biennium.
Senate Enrolled Act 73, Health Care Innovation Studies, included a one-time appropriation of $1,000,000 to the Wyoming Department of Health for the purposes of carrying out healthcare innovation studies. These studies must aim to achieve the following, per Wyoming Statute 9-2-128:
- Reduction of costs associated with long-term care, chronic disease or other healthcare services to the state of Wyoming;
- Allowing individuals in need of long-term care to remain in their homes and communities;
- Developing necessary long-term care or other healthcare services in Wyoming; or,
- Use of broadband internet to access healthcare services.
