Suit Filed Against Xerox, Nevada Health Exchange

Posted: Updated:

A class action lawsuit filed against Xerox and Nevada's health exchange alleges thousands of Nevadans may have paid for policies but remain uninsured because of ongoing problems with the online system.
 
The suit filed late Tuesday in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas seeks unspecified damages for those affected.
 
The lead plaintiff is Larry Basich, a Las Vegas retiree who bought a policy in October and paid premiums to the exchange that were never forwarded to his selected carrier.
 
Basich's coverage was to take effect Jan. 1. On New Year's Eve he suffered a heart attack and days later had triple-bypass surgery. He racked up more than $400,000 in medical bills.
 
The lawsuit filed by Callister, Immerman and Associates claims thousands of people have similar circumstances.   (AP)
