Wyoming Health Insurance Pool
The Wyoming Health Insurance Pool was created by the 1990 Wyoming Legislature to provide health insurance coverage to residents of Wyoming who are denied adequate health insurance. This plan is specially designed to meet the needs of those individuals who are unable to purchase health insurance for themselves because of existing health problems.
