You Can’t Afford to Not Be Insured

Oct 23, 2018
When it comes to health insurance, reconsider if you don’t think you need protection by enrolling in a Qualified Health Plan (QHP). You never know when an unexpected medical event could occur—we are all just one accident away from financial ruin. That’s why Nevada Health Link wants to connect you to health insurance that covers your needs. Discover what common accidents leading to operations would cost if you’re uninsured and then enroll in a QHP during Open Enrollment from November 1 – January 15.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament(ACL) Surgery

If you are a part of Northern Nevada’s snow sports scene, tearing an ACL is relatively common. The injury, which often requires surgery, can cost up to $25,000 without health insurance. Make sure that your health insurance doesn’t limit your coverage based on activity–unlike Short Term Limited Duration Plans–to ensure that you get the best care possible.

Emergency Appendectomy

When disaster strikes, make sure that your health insurance has you covered. An emergency surgery, like an appendectomy, can set you back up to $28,000. With a QHP through Nevada Health Link, emergency services are covered under the 10 Essential Health Benefits. You won’t have to worry about coverage or in-network hospitals when an emergency happens.


You never know when roughhousing is taken a little too far. Concussions–and their aftermath–are a serious consequence of contact sports. Treatment of a concussion can run up to $18,454. Don’t let a lack of health insurance dictate how you treat your brain–it’s far too important.
