Posted On: Dec. 28, 2022 9:37 AM CST

An early look at Washington, Colorado and Nevada shows their plans to provide more affordable coverage to hundreds of thousands of people via public health insurance options aren’t working out as hoped, reports Politico. In Colorado, only one insurance company out of eight met all the cost-cutting targets set by lawmakers. In Nevada, officials face an uphill battle implementing a policy the state’s incoming Republican governor opposes. And in Washington policies are still too expensive and enrollment is paltry, state health officials say.
