State Worried About Health Care Law Cost

(Las Vegas, NV)  —  The U.S. Census says about one-quarter of Nevada residents under 65-years-old had no health insurance coverage sometime during 2009.  What worries state officials is the cost of implementing the new federal health coverage law.  The “Sun” says a state analysis found expanding Medicaid for low-income Nevadans would cost over $600-billion between 2014 and 2019.  The federal government is expected to cover a portion of the cost.  Nevada and other states are fighting the health care law’s individual mandate in court.
