How it Works

Start the enrollment process by answering a few short questions on the pre-screener tool; you can do this by yourself or with the help of a Navigator organization, certified enrollment assister or licensed broker. After you’ve answered the questions, Nevada Health Link will let you know what you may qualify for and point you in the right direction to start the enrollment process. If one person in your family qualifies for a public health insurance program, such as Medicaid, Nevada Health Link will let you know.

Plan Categories

Different plans work better for different people. If you have a chronic illness or have prescription drugs you fill regularly, you might choose to pay more each month for the gold or platinum plan so you end up paying less for your frequent care and prescriptions. If you are young and healthy, you might choose to pay less each month for the bronze plan and pay more when you do receive medical care. Learn more about the plan categories here.

Some people may also get help in the form of public insurance programs, such as Nevada Check Up – the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) – or Medicaid. If you or your family members might qualify for subsidies or public insurance coverage programs, Nevada Health Link will let you know once you answer a few short questions, and direct you to the appropriate place to enroll in these programs if you wish.

Who’s covered?

Nevada Health Link is here to help anyone looking for health insurance, whether an individual already has insurance or not. If you already have insurance through your employer, you are not required to enroll through Nevada Health Link but are welcome to if you’d like.

No one will be turned away for pre-existing conditions, such as diabetes or cancer.

The only requirement to apply for and purchase insurance through Nevada Health Link is that you are a resident of Nevada and are lawfully present in the United States.
