The employees of Nevada’s Silver State Health Insurance Exchange have had a hard time persuading executive search firms to help them look for a new executive director.
The organization oversees Nevada Health Link, a state-based exchange that posts videos of all board meetings and extensive collections of board meeting packet documents on its website.
The exchange has run into Web-based enrollment system and paper application processing problems, and Jon Hager, the former permanent executive director, resigned in February.
The exchange board named Steve Fisher to be the interim executive director in February.
Exchange employees put out a solicitation for a search firm to help look for a permanent executive director. The exchange received no new proposals.
The employees tried to talk to four firms to find out why the solicitation had attracted no bids.
One failed to reply.
