The Nevada Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP) has invited Larry Harrison, local broker and owner of Harrison Insurance Agency, to be a stakeholder in the formation of the Nevada Health Insurance Exchange mandated by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act legislation in 2010. The first of a series of public meetings will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 2 from 8:30 to 10 a.m. at the Las Vegas district office.
At the first meeting, the purpose and general requirements of a Health Insurance Exchange and the options that are available to Nevada will be covered. Prior to the meeting, an issue brief to help frame the discussion, along with some key questions and issues, will be sent to Harrison.
Over the next several months, Harrison and other insurance health care experts will assist in framing what’s most important and how best to structure a Health Insurance Exchange that will meet the needs of Nevada residents and businesses. The Nevada Health Insurance Exchange will be an important part of the required health care reform.
As an expert on health care reform, Harrision is available to discuss the changes and challenges with news media and groups.
