Sandoval to announce Obamacare carrier for 14 Nevada counties

Sandoval to announce Obamacare carrier for 14 Nevada counties”

Those 14 rural counties became in danger of having no insurers in 2018 after Anthem announced it wouldn't sell ObamaCare plans next year in Nevada.

Gov. Brian Sandoval will have a press conference at 11 a.m. today, where he's expected to announce an insurance carrier to provide service in 14 rural counties on Nevada's health insurance exchange.

SilverSummit is operated by Centene Corp.it will offer insurance to residents of the 14 counties left bare by the departure of Prominence and Anthem.

Plan rates will be finalized on December 5, Korbulic said. Health Plan of Nevada will provide an insurance option in Nye, Clark, and Washoe counties. To expand its offering so that Nevadans throughout the state have access to its new high quality health insurance, SilverSummit has partnered with Hometown Health to utilize its expansive provider network.

About SilverSummit Healthplan SilverSummit Healthplan (SilverSummit) is a managed care plan that provides health insurance to the people of Nevada.

Health-policy experts describe empty counties as the worst-case scenario for Obamacare's individual insurance markets. "The Division continues to work with our state partners to explore long-term solutions for Nevada citizens".

Centene is among the few large-cap health insurers that have not exited the individual insurance market despite Republican lawmakers' persistent efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Health insurers are facing an upheaval in their businesses amid growing uncertainty over the healthcare legislation under President Donald Trump, who seek to follow through on his promise to dismantle former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, formally known as the Affordable Care Act.

Heather Korbulic, executive director of the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange, said both of the state's carriers, SilverSummit and Health Plan of Nevada, have shown commitment to Nevada.

The Exchange was established per Nevada Revised Statues in 2011, and operations began in 2013.
