Nevada lawmakers oppose closing Consumer Health Assistance office
Reno Gazette Journal, February 10, 2009
Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons' plan to eliminate the Consumer Health Assistance office met sharp resistance from lawmakers and those who use the agency's services. The Consumer Health Assistance program helps solve problems with health insurance, medical benefits, workers compensation, prescription drugs, and medical bills. Program director Valerie Rosalin said her office handled more than 8,000 cases in 2008 and saved patients more than $30 million in out-of-pocket costs by resolving disputes.
