The Nevada Health CO-OP, which was set up to provide a low-cost alternative to commercial health insurance plans, is having trouble keeping key medical providers on its policies. Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada has decided to give 60-days notice and will leave all the CO-OP's health plans.

The key reason seems to be that the CO-OP was taking too long to pay its bills. That leaves those patients with CO-OP health plans with no oncology provider. So what happens now? And what does it say about the future of the Nevada Health CO-OP?
