Nevada Health Link is powered by the technology platform, GetInsured, which is the state based exchange (SBE) platform where eligibility and enrollment takes place. All of the plans offered are still certified by Nevada Health Link, but enrollment will take place through the SBE portal. Nevada Health Link is still the only health insurance resource that can provide individuals with financial assistance (federal tax credits and subsidies) to help cover the cost of insurance. Plus, Nevada still provides its citizens with many ways to obtain in-person assistance throughout the State.
Nevada Health Link is supported by the state agency, Silver State Health Insurance Exchange and was established due to the Affordable Care Act, sometimes referred to as Obamacare.
