During a hearing this week to review Alex Azar’s nomination to head the Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming, noted that Wyoming has been waiting for over two years for approval of a program to improve health outcomes for residents of the Wind River Reservation.

Here’s the exchange between Senator Enzi and Nominee Azar.

Enzi also received assurances from Azar that he would be willing to look at how Medicare pays for drugs based on the value to a patient. The Senate Finance Committee is expected to vote later this month on whether to recommend Azar’s confirmation to the full Senate.
