Amodei Reacts to Anthem Exiting Six Counties in CD-2

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                Contact: Logan Ramsey, 202-225-6155

WASHINGTON, D.C. Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-02) released the following statement today after Anthem announced it will be pulling out of six counties in Nevada’s Second Congressional District, leaving Churchill, Elko, Pershing, Eureka, Humboldt, and Lander counties without a single health care provider to choose from in 2018.

“Sadly, this news isn’t shocking,” said Congressman Amodei. “It represents another symptom of the sickness that is killing America’s health care system. While there are plenty of arguments on how to fix this, regardless of your political views, it’s clear the status quo isn’t working and is in need of serious repair. Once again, I’m left wondering, when is Congress going to put the issue ahead of the politics? I will continue to focus on the facts and the policy options to be applied in Nevada. As always, my goal is to ensure that any reform package increases Americans’ access to quality and affordable care, while paying respect to rural communities like ours that are being hit the hardest.”
