Help Wyoming Families Keep Health Insurance
Thousands of families enrolled in Wyoming Medicaid will lose their health insurance this year when eligibility reviews take place, but free assistance is available to help them keep health coverage.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, folks enrolled in the Wyoming Medicaid program did not have to reenroll to continue their health coverage. Normally Medicaid enrollees have to reapply and have an application accepted each year.
This pandemic-based policy is coming to an end. Roughly one-twelfth of the current Wyoming Medicaid population will receive a letter, text and email each month making them aware they lose their benefits in 60 days if they do not reapply or if their application is rejected. Wyoming Medicaid started sending these letters in March and will continue for the following 11 months.
The most immediate priority is encouraging friends and family on Medicaid to call 1-855-294-2127 or visit www.wesystem.wyo.gov to make sure Wyoming Medicaid has accurate contact information on file. This way they are made aware that they need to reapply.

Tens of thousands of people are in danger of losing coverage. The good news … many will qualify for other low-priced health insurance options though the Health Insurance Marketplace or job-based insurance plans. you
Enroll Wyoming is a great resource to have on hand throughout this process. It is a grant-funded Wyoming nonprofit that specializes in identifying health coverage solutions that work for each individual (family) and their situation. Enroll Wyoming is also available to provide one-on-one, face-to-face help with both Medicaid and Marketplace applications. The easiest way to ask for help is to call 211 and ask for an Enroll Wyoming Health Insurance Navigator. All services are free. Navigators do not work on commission and do not have quotas or sales goals. They have extensive training and experience in guiding people through their options so they can decide what fits their needs.
