ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues concerning the termination of the Medicaid program in Nevada. According to Charles Duarte, administrator of Nevada's Division of Health Care Financing and Policy, Medicaid was becoming unsustainable due to the state's budget shortfall. Duarte cites the economic impact on the eligible recipients and the health care industry in the state as the most significant obstacle to the termination of the program. Also mentioned is the report "Medicaid Could Save States $1 Trillion" from the state's Health and Human Services Commission.
