The Silver State Health Insurance Exchange — which oversees Nevada Health Link — has voted to fire Xerox, which built the flawed exchange site. The state paid Xerox approximately $12.3 million for the site's construction, according to the report. Although Nevada will direct its residents to the federal exchange site for the next open enrollment period under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the state hopes to find a new contractor to construct another state-based exchange site for the 2016 sign-up period.

Nevada is the third state — after Massachusetts and Oregon — to scrap a state-based exchange website plagued by technical problems.
