Outside the Open Enrollment Period, you generally can enroll in a health insurance plan only if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.

Nevada Health Link is a State Based Exchange offering health insurance for people who don’t have health coverage

If you don’t have health insurance through an employer or job, Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or another source that provides qualifying health coverage, Nevada Health Link can help you get covered.

  • If you have job-based insurance: You can buy a plan through Nevada Health Link, but you’ll pay full sticker price unless your employer’s insurance doesn’t meet certain standards. Most employer-based plans do meet the standards.
  • If you have Medicare (65 years and older) and are currently enrolled in a Medicare plan, you cannot switch to Nevada Health Link, supplement your coverage with an Exchange plan, or buy an Exchange dental plan. Learn about Medicare.

Special Enrollment Periods (SEP) allow for health insurance coverage enrollment any time during the year. Did you miss the opportunity to enroll in a Qualified Health Plan through Nevada Health Link? Although the deadline to enroll in coverage ended on Jan. 15th, you or a loved one may be eligible to enroll now if you report a life or income change.
