To sign up for a health plan under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) you can go directly to the online health insurance marketplace for Nevada. If you need personalized help, you can reach out to one of the many types of enrollment assistants working remotely during the COVID-19 crisis.
For 2021 health plans, Nevada open enrollment runs from November 1 until December 15, 2020. If you enroll by December 15, your coverage will begin on January 1, 2021.
Where's the Nevada Health Care Exchange?
You can find the health insurance exchange for Nevada at Nevada Health Link. (Nevada switched from HealthCare.gov to a state-run exchange in 2019.) This is where you can learn about the various health insurance options available to you under the Affordable Care Act. If you see a plan you like, you'll be guided through the enrollment process online.
Getting Personalized Help with Enrollment
In Nevada, if you need help understanding your options for coverage under Obamacare or signing up for a plan, you can get assistance from a certified enrollment counselor or from a health insurance broker or agent. Both are free.
Enrollment counselors can explain your options, answer your questions, and help you apply for the plan you choose -- but they can't recommend a specific plan for you.
To find an enrollment counselor in Nevada, visit Find Enrollment Assistance at Nevada Health Link. There, you can enter your location to find a certified helper near you.
Licensed health insurance agents or brokers can also help you understand your health care coverage options under Obamacare. Unlike government trained counselors, brokers and agents are allowed to suggest the best plan for you.
To directly connect with a Nevada insurance broker who can help you evaluate insurance plans and choose a plan that's appropriate for your situation, visit Find Enrollment Assistance at Nevada Health Link or call 800-943-6832. (We receive advertising income from the licensed brokers who offer their services through this telephone number.)
Talk to Nevada Health Link. If you just want information, but not advice about your Obamacare options, you can talk with a telephone support representative at Nevada Health Link at 1-800-547-2927.
