LAS VEGAS -- Jon Hager, executive director of the troubled Silver State Health Insurance Exchange, resigned today.

Hager delivered his letter of resignation to members of the governing board, effective March 14.

“The knowledge and experiences I have gained as executive director of the exchange will prove invaluable in my working career,” Hager said in a statement released by Nevada Health Link. “I am grateful to the board and the governor for this incredible opportunity to serve Nevadans. However, it is time to use my new found knowledge to pursue the opportunities that have been offered to me.”

The Silver State Health Insurance Exchange board will consider candidates for the vacancy in the coming weeks.

The exchange administers health insurance in Nevada under the federal Affordable Care Act.

Hager was appointed executive director of the exchange in January 2012. Prior to 2012, he was chief financial officer of Nevada's Public Employees' Benefits Program and was responsible for the program's $476 million annual budget which serves 72,000 state and local government employees, retirees and dependents.
