Linda Rolain passed away at her Las Vegas home on Monday Her family had joined two lawsuits against the State of Nevada and the company that set up its troubled online software, Xerox She had tried to enroll in the state's health exchange in November and after numerous issues, finally paid in January for coverage to start in March
But when she went to get treatment, there was no record of her name and she finally received an insurance card in May She underwent surgery in mid-May but struggled to recover
Robert Rolain, who lost 60 pounds due to stress, said working with the Silver State Exchange was 'pure hell'.
He said he believes that if enrollment had worked properly, Linda could have undergone chemotherapy and radiation to get rid of the tumor - and that she would still be alive.
'It's hard, knowing she could have lived a little longer anyway,' he said.
Rolain was one of about 150 Nevadans suing Xerox for enrollment issues that left them without the health insurance they paid for, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Her lawyer said he fears that hers will not be the last case to end so tragically.
'Some of our clients are so ill that if their needs are not addressed now, it is a matter of life and death,' Matthew Callister told the Review-Journal.
'We urge all Nevadans to verify that their insurance is active and in place in light of the many problems that hundreds if not thousands of Nevadans have gone through.'

Prayers for her family. And for America.

It’s not a fault, it’s a feature
From the same State of Nevada:
“$2 Million/Month for Illegals Healthcare”
in one city alone, Las Vegas, illegals with failing kidneys are running up about $2 million a month in bills for dialysis and other medical treatment at the only publicly supported hospital, the University Medical Center (UMC).

It’s just like the VA. Run out the clock and the really sick ones die off. It’s great for the government reporting statistics, which is all that really counts with a bureaucracy.
What a world we now live in.
RIP Linda Rolain
This is on YOU Hussein, you frigging LIAR.
There are no Death Panels; Pelosi, Reid, Obama, and the entire liberal media from MSNBC to CNN assured us of that.
Obama Tried, People Died.
Don’t overlook the benefits.
The Death Panels are the best thing ever to happen to the SocSec and Medicare financials. Each year sliced of the lifespan is huge.
When the millennials get snarky over grandpa’s early demise the regime will send them some Groupons for student loan remissions.
Sad but true. I have relatives in England. The stories are all true. If you like the idea of the DMV and Post Office providing your medical care, you’ll love government healthcare.
