Individual and Family Scenarios

We know that all Nevadans have different needs and diverse situations when it comes to health insurance coverage. Some enrollees may be eligible for subsidies to help cover their monthly premium costs, making health insurance more affordable than you thought. Others may be eligible for Medicaid and/or Nevada Check Up.
