has severed ties with the operator of the state's problem-plagued health insurance exchange
and will partner with the federal government for enrollments in the upcoming year.
Members of the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange Board said they have lost confidence in Xerox Corp.'s
ability to fix myriad problems with the state's online Web portal, Nevada Health Link, in time for the next open enrollment period that begins Nov. 15. They are unwilling to give it another year to work out the bugs, board members said.
Nevada's board voted unanimously to become a “state supported” exchange for 2015. Nevada will retain its status as a state-based exchange, but it will allow the federal government to determine eligibility and enrollment functions.
