Health Care Measures to Introduced in Wyo Senate
Cheyenne, WY – The Wyoming Senate introduced four health care measures Monday in an effort to deal with rising costs. Senate Health Committee Chairman Charlie Scott says the medical errors commission measure is the most significant. It is among the two tort reform measures under consideration and Scott says it would set up a system to look into health care errors and possibly make changes to avoid future ones. Bills also introduced would assist in recruiting doctors, study health care technology and provide smaller hospitals with money to treat catastrophic cases. All four bills head into committee.
