Twenty U.S. counties are at risk of having no insurance provider in the healthcare exchanges at the start of 2018. If something doesn’t change, Nevada will have the fewest providers. Thirteen of their 16 counties – plus independent Carson City – currently will have no options at the end of this year, leaving 8,000 Nevadans in uncertainty. Silver State Insurance Exchange director Heather Korbulic is working against the Sept. 20 deadline for 2018 insurance plans, trying to encourage providers to enter those “bare counties” or otherwise supply healthcare resources to the residents. Soledad O’Brien speaks with Korbulic to discuss the instability that caused insurance providers to leave Nevada, potential options for residents, and her hopes for the future of health insurance.
