Why Wy Medicaid Expansion will Fail

February 3, 2015

In this eleven-minute interview with John Birbari on Wind River Radio’s Morning Buzz, Dr. Mansell expresses his concern that expanding Medicaid in Wyoming might hamper our ability to help the truly needy. Dr. Mansell’s comments are based on his “twenty-seven years in the trenches” of caring for patients. The Wyoming Legislature is now debating the issue of whether to expand Medicaid benefits from its current 83,000 Wyomingites who are below 100% of the federal poverty level to an estimated 17,800 single able-bodied enrollees ages 18 to 64 at 100% to 138% of the poverty level. Dr. Mansell gives us an insider’s view of the consequences of low reimbursement rates, cost shifting that drives up costs to those not on Medicaid, the effect of putting more people on government-paid care, the mandate problem, the greater efficiency of free markets, the abuse of co-pays and free care, and the phenomenon of crossing state lines for benefits.

Freedom or Fiscal Shackles?

October 4, 2011 – Wyoming Liberty Group Office (Cheyenne, Wyoming)

The budget crisis in Washington, DC may seem far away, but it is about to have a major impact on the Wyoming state budget. Each year Wyoming gets $2.2 billion from the federal government. As the Congressional debt crisis super-committee goes to work, we can expect significant cuts in these funds. This could force drastic changes to the benefits that Wyoming families get from the state. It could also be a good opportunity for the state to take control over its budget.

WyLiberty research fellow Sven R Larson, Ph.D., discusses the potential effects of major cuts to federal funds in Wyoming.
