Governor Brian Sandoval issued the following statement after Anthem announced it would with withdraw from Nevada’s Exchange for Plan Year

“I am frustrated and disappointed with Anthem’s surprise and abrupt decision to leave the healthcare exchange especially during uncertain times. This is a significant blow to the state’s individual marketplace, however, residents in Washoe, Clark and Nye Counties who have purchased from the state-based exchange will still have two providers to purchase from during the next open enrollment period. My office is in regular contact with the two remaining providers in order to ensure there will continue to be options for the more than 80,000 Nevadans who purchase insurance through the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange. These efforts include working to find a solution for the individuals and families in potential so-called ‘bare counties.’” – Governor Brian Sandoval
