The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) has scheduled a news conference Wednesday to discuss its proposed “SHARE Plan” for the potential expansion of Wyoming Medicaid.

The deparement will release an accompanying report about the SHARE Plan will be posted online one hour before the news conference begins.

An amendment to the budget bill passed by the Wyoming Legislature in early 2014 authorized the governor, WDH and the Wyoming Department of Insurance to begin conversations with federal officials on a potential Medicaid expansion approach. The proposed SHARE Plan is the result of those discussions.
