A state board overseeing Nevada’s bungled health insurance exchange will discuss options to minimize the state’s exposure in a class-action lawsuit, including invoking a contract provision that could put the legal onus on Xerox.
The board next Tuesday is scheduled to discuss the lawsuit filed in Clark County on behalf of hundreds of consumers who claim they paid for health insurance but didn’t receive coverage and were left with big medical bills.
Discussion comes as the Las Vegas lawyer who filed the lawsuit said Wednesday he’ll seek a court order requiring the state or Xerox to provide immediate coverage for several people struggling with serious illness.
“These patients are suffering life-and-death consequences now,” attorney Matthew Callister said. Callister, a former Las Vegas councilman and Democratic lawmaker who served in both the state Assembly and Senate, said about 200 people have joined the lawsuit so far.
