A final Senate vote is scheduled for Tuesday on a bill that would launch a study into the cost of health care in Wyoming.
SF 67 was approved in its second Senate reading on Monday. The bill calls for study to determine why Wyoming’s health care costs are higher than the national average.
According to bill sponsors, Wyoming’s hospitals charge patients about $4,000 per day, compared to the national average of $3,000 per day. The bill identifies about a dozen possible reasons for the disparity to be examined.
