Second, by using our prescreening tool, you can see what healthcare plans you are eligible for, and what plans best fit your lifestyle. If you’d prefer in-person assistance, you can also use our search tool to find a licensed broker or agent near you that can help you enroll.

Finally, if you are currently enrolled in a plan through Nevada Health Link, then you will need to focus on re-enrollment. The good news is that re-enrollment has been made easier for 2016/2017. If you are happy with your current plan, re-enrollment will automatically continue your plan through to 2017. However, many plans are changing for 2017, so take a few minutes to review and shop the plans. You may find a different plan that is better suited to your specific health and income situation. If things have changed and you would like to alter your plan accordingly, follow similar steps to those listed above. We’re confident you can find the perfect plan to fit your needs.

If you currently don’t have health insurance, Nevada Health Link is here to help. As part of a Qualifying Life Event (QLE), you may be eligible for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP).

All of our health plans exist to reduce the costs of health insurance and make sure you are covered. We’re always to help, so don’t hesitate to reach out for assistance.
