Health insurance helps you get the care you need, when you need it. Insurance will help keep you and your family healthy. If you have insurance, you’ll be able to get preventive care (such as regular check-ups, screenings and immunizations) so you and your family will be sick less often. Health insurance also protects you financially; you won’t have to worry about high medical bills you can’t pay.
Additionally, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a U.S. law, says everyone must have health insurance. If someone doesn’t have health insurance, he or she will incur a penalty (a fine) on his or her income taxes. Nevada Health Link is here to protect Nevadans from the tax penalty by helping them find insurance based on their budget.
