(Carson City, NV)  —  More than a dozen healthcare organizations have urged Governor Brian Sandoval and state lawmakers to expand Medicaid for 71,000 low-income Nevadans without health insurance.

Ron Kline with the Southern Nevada Medical Industry Coalition tells the “Review-Journal” the federal government will cover nearly all of the cost, and it would help Nevada’s economy.

Sandoval has said he would not make a final decision until his State of the State address in January.

More than 300,000 Nevadans now receive Medicaid.
