Enrollment Extension For Nevada Exchange Allowed


The Silver State Health Insurance Exchange Board action on Thursday leaves the door open for tens if not hundreds of thousands of people to reapply after open enrollment ends March 31.

Officials say up to 300,000 people may have tried over the past six months to choose a plan over Nevada Health Link but were thwarted by program errors in the system designed by Xerox.

Only about 22,000 people have successfully enrolled and paid for policies since the exchange went live Oct. 1.

Xerox officials had wanted the special enrollment be limited to about 10,000 people who have picked a plan but not yet paid for coverage.
