Already have a plan? Important information about Re-enrollment
Re-enrollment is easy and remains the same this plan year. If you already have a plan under Nevada Health Link, re-enrollment automatically continues you on that plan. BUT please note that carriers and plans have changed for 2018. If your carrier is no longer available (Anthem and Prominence have left the marketplace in NV) you will automatically be re-enrolled in a comparable plan. Therefore, we encourage Nevada consumers to shop the marketplace to find a plan that is tailored to suit your needs. You can do so by visiting Healthcare.gov or by visiting our Approved 2017 Unsubsidized Rate Page.
- You will be automatically re-enrolled into a health insurance plan for 2018 if you were previously on a plan in 2017 with the Nevada Health Link.
- IMPORTANT: If you were on a plan with the carrier: Anthem Rocky Mountain PPO or Anthem HMO Colorado, OR Prominence, those plans will discontinue on Dec. 31 of this year. You will however be enrolled in a similarly priced or comparable plan with available carriers remaining on the Exchange (Health Plan of Nevada and SilverSummit).
- To be sure any financial help continues starting January 1, 2018, you must continue your payment by the insurance carrier’s payment policy.
When should you re-enroll?
You will automatically be re-enrolled on your current plan unless you would like to change carriers and/or plans.
- Enroll by December 15, 2017 to ensure any financial help continues starting January 1, 2018.
- Open enrollment timeline has changed! It begins Nov. 1, 2017 and is open through Dec. 15, 2017.
NOTE: Once you enroll in a plan, you must pay your first premium directly to the insurance company – not to the Health Insurance Marketplace. Insurance companies handle payments differently. Follow the instructions from your insurer about how and when to make your premium payment and the due date.
Remember: Based on your income, you could receive help from the federal government to pay for some of your insurance costs in 2018. Plus, more plan options are available for 2018, and you can review them when you re-enroll here.
