Inspired by the HFS Job Ladder program and the need for access to health care services for those who lost Medicaid coverage and have no health insurance from their new employer, Healthy Frontiers Health Plan (HFHP) is a new demonstration health care reform pilot for the working uninsured in Wyoming. HFHP was approved and funded by legislation supported by the Governor with bi-partisan support from the Wyoming State Legislature in 2010.
The new HFHP model addresses both cost and access issues with the four following elements that provide “incentives alignment” for both patients and providers that improves health while reducing cost, and promoting self-sufficiency.
- An Incentives Funded Health Account linked to job training & employment (JobAssist), and compliance with prevention services.
- A Primary Care Home with Prevention Focus, chronic disease identification & management, and with no financial barriers.
- Access to Clinical Prevention Services (HealthAssist) for high risk patients & families.
- Specialty Medical & Hospital Services with cost-share designed to promote choice and self-responsibility.
