With just a few weeks until open enrollment, WINhealth has decided to leave Wyoming’s health insurance exchange. The insurer hoped that Obamacare’s federal bailout fund would pay for its losses. However, it only paid insurers a fraction of what it promised. Wyoming legislators rejected Medicaid expansion last year because they worried the federal government would renege on its promises and here is a prime example. Insurers have found out the hard way the federal government can’t be trusted. Let’s hope it is a lesson learned by legislators still pushing for Medicaid expansion.
