Mead sets seven town halls to solicit ideas on health care

Gov. Matt Mead has set seven town hall meetings to solicit ideas from citizens on health care issues, including the concept of health benefit exchanges. The town hall series will launch at the Park County Library in Cody, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. January 10. The series will continue in Gillette, Casper, Rock Springs, Jackson, Riverton and Cheyenne. But dates and times for those meetings are not yet set.

Gov. Mead’s health care policy advisor Elizabeth Hoy will take part in the meetings.

“We want citizens to come out and give us their input about health care in Wyoming and any ideas, concerns or comments they have about possible solutions including concepts of a Health Benefit Exchange,” Hoy said in a prepared statement.
