Two Vision Plans
On October 28, Nevada Health Link announced a partnership with VSP® Individual Vision Plans, an offering of VSP Vision Care, the only national not-for-profit vision benefits
When you enroll in VSP Individual Vision Plan, your coverage will go into effect the same day and a regular health plan isn’t required to purchase a vision plan. With possible savings of over $200 a year on eye care and eyewear, there’s no reason not to consider the options!

Nevada Health Link offers 21 dental plans from six different carriers, available statewide. That’s a lot of options to keep your teeth happy and healthy! The carriers include Alpha, EMI, Delta, Liberty, Best and Rocky Mountain, all highly qualified to provide dental plans suited to your needs.
