CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada has authorized spending another $3.5 million for a private contractor to meet work change orders needed as the state prepares to roll out its health insurance exchange in three weeks.

The state Board of Examiners on Tuesday approved the additional funding, which comes from the federal government. It brings the total contract with Xerox State Healthcare to more than $75 million.

Nevada's online insurance exchange, called Nevada Health Link, was created to meet mandates of federal health care reform and has been in the works for two years. Enrollment begins Oct. 1.

But exchange officials say federal rules are still evolving and the contractor will need to make last-minute changes as rules are finalized.
