Nevada Health Exchange Takes Up 2015 Policy Fees

Posted: Updated:

The financial viability of Nevada's health insurance exchange comes under scrutiny as the board overseeing operations considers potential fees to cover next year's operating costs.
 
There are a lot of elements for the board to consider Thursday. Enrollment, marketing, billing options and continuing enrollment assistants each has a price tag. 
 
Depending on how the board decides to proceed, monthly fees could skyrocket. First-year operations were paid with federal grants. But beginning in 2015, state exchanges must be self-reliant, and Gov. Brian Sandoval has said he will not use general fund sources to support it. 
 
This year consumers who purchased medical plans are paying $4.95 per month. 
 
One big unknown is projected enrollments, which have fallen woefully short. More people signing up means a lesser monthly fee in 2015.  (AP)
