We have had several calls in the last few weeks regarding the health insurance open enrollment period for Nevada residents. Unfortunately, the open enrollment for Nevada Health Link officially ended on March 31st. However, that does not mean you are not able to purchase Nevada health insurance. There are still many options available for individuals that missed open enrollment for whatever reason.
- A special enrollment period continues for individuals that have experienced a Qualifying Life Event, such as marriage, birth, moving to a new service area or loss of other coverage.
- Medicaid and Nevada Check Up applicants can apply year round.
- Private insurance plans (off the Exchange) can be applied for at any time. Keep in mind that a coverage waiting period may apply, depending your circumstances.
- Small businesses can apply for coverage any time throughout the year.
The next official open enrollment period will begin November 15, 2014.
