Nevada governor vetoes universal Medicaid plan

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval vetoed a bill on Friday that would have allowed any resident, regardless of income, to enroll in a Medicaid-like policy, according to CNN.

The bill would have established the Nevada Care Plan, which would have been sold on the state's insurance marketplace. Residents would have been allowed to use ACA tax credits toward the plan or buy in with their own money if they did not qualify for credits. The bill was aimed at helping residents obtain affordable and comprehensive insurance coverage, according to the report.

In a statement about his veto highlighted in the CNN report, Mr. Sandoval said, "the bill would have added more uncertainty to an industry that needs less."
