BREAKING: WINhealth reportedly closing for good

Pitchengine Communities has received word from a large private company in Cheyenne that WINhealth, one of Wyoming's only health insurance providers, is closing for good. The news comes not quite two weeks after WINhealth announced that it was dropping out of the individual market and federal exchange program. "We got a notification today (Oct. 20) that WINhealth is shutting its doors, not just individuals, but the entire business," the Cheyenne company tells Pitchengine. Multiple calls to WINhealth for comment have not been returned. The news from a couple weeks ago affected thousands of Wyomingites who use the company for individual plans. Now, employers who have purchased plans, including those as big as the City of Cheyenne, will be forced to find a new health insurance provider. A City of Cheyenne representative declined to confirm the news but said they may be able to speak about the situation soon. We will update this post as more information comes in. #shortgo #healthcare #insurance #health
