Nevada moves closer to a landmark Medicaid-for-all healthcare model – Los Angeles Times

With his signature on a novel Medicaid-for-all-type bill, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval could rewrite the way many of his constituents get healthcare, and establish a model that other states might eventually follow in the absence of congressional action to fix or replace Obamacare.

He got the bill delivered to his desk Monday. He hasn’t said what he will do with it. If he doesn’t sign or veto it by June 16, it will automatically become law.

The Nevada Care Plan, as the bill is known, currently has no way of being sold on the state’s healthcare exchange. It has no established cost to the state and customers. It doesn’t have permission from the federal government to allow for the use of federal income tax credits for it to be purchased.

It does have a moniker, though: Sprinklecare.
