Managers of the Nevada Health Link public exchange are hoping they can persuade the state’s agents and brokers to help sell its coverage in 2015. The Silver State Health Insurance Exchange Board, the body that oversees the exchange, has decided to give up on the homegrown, glitch-plagued enrollment system it used in 2014 and switch to HealthCare.gov for 2015.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) developed HealthCare.gov to handle enrollment for the HHS-run Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) exchanges. In 2015, Nevada will still have a state-based exchange program, but it will have a state-based exchange program that uses federal eligibility and enrollment systems, according to a memo the exchange prepared for agents and brokers.
