25,000 Nevadans With Canceled Health Policies in Limbo

Posted: Updated:

Nearly 25,000 Nevadans who received health insurance cancellation notices are in limbo, awaiting word from the state insurance commissioner and Gov. Brian Sandoval on whether they can keep their plans for another year.
 
President Barack Obama after intense pressure last week announced changes to his signature health reform law, saying consumers could keep plans for another year that otherwise don't comply with requirements of the new law.
 
But the president left the final decision up to states and Nevada like many others are trying to figure out whether extending canceled policies is even doable.
 
Democratic Nevada Rep. Dina Titus on Tuesday urged Nevada's Republican governor to decide quickly on how the state will proceed so that people who did receive cancellation notices can weigh their options for the coming year.   (AP)
