Nevada Health Link opened a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) for uninsured Nevadans, starting February 15 through August 15, 2021. Thanks to the recently passed American Rescue Plan, we’ll soon be offering more money to help pay for your coverage. Most people who currently have a plan through Nevada Health Link will see a much lower monthly premium cost, and people who may have earned too much to get financial help in the past will now be eligible for the first time.

Open Enrollment is the yearly period when people can enroll in a health insurance plan. Open Enrollment runs from November 1, 2021 to January 15, 2022. For coverage beginning January 1, 2021 you must enroll by December 31, 2020. Outside the Open Enrollment Period, you generally can enroll in a health insurance plan only if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.
