Wyoming - State Insurance and Assistance Programs for Persons with Diabetes
Hock's offers 30-50% discounted prices on diabetes supplies. We cannot specifically recommend or endorse any company but we have been listing Hock's in our resource directory for over a year as one of the two cheapest online companies to purchase from. We recently affiliated with Hock's because our own experience with them has been so positive. If you do place an order through our site, they will contribute financially towards our cause and you will get reasonable prices for diabetes supplies.

Women, Infants and Children Program - Provides eligibility and benefit information about the Wyoming WIC Program when the caller selects option 3. If the caller desires more information about the program after hearing the message, they are instructed to stay on the line which transfers the caller to the State WIC Office. Phone: WIC Information: 1-800-994-GROW.
Pharmacy Assistance - The number rings directly into the University of Wyoming School of Pharmacy where a live person helps the caller. The hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Voicemail is available when the office is closed. The call center operator returns calls promptly the next morning. The target clients are all Wyoming citizens who are interested in reviewing their prescribed and nonprescribed medication regimens for adverse drug reactions, duplicate therapy, and possible cost savings. The goal of the service is to encourage clients to take a more active role in their health care regimen, and to improve the relationship with their primary health care provider and their community pharmacist.
