Less Than Two Weeks Remain To Enroll In A Qualified Health Plan Through Nevada Health Link

  • Free enrollment assistance available; Weekend call center hours extended for duration of Open Enrollment

Las Vegas, NV - The clock is ticking with only 13 days left to enroll before the December 15th midnight deadline approaches. Nevadans can find coverage in a Qualified Health Plan (QHP) and Qualified Dental Plan (QDP) through Nevada Health Link, the online insurance marketplace operated by the state agency, Silver State Health Insurance Exchange – and the only place consumers can get financial assistance (subsidies) to help offset the cost of insurance.

To ensure consumers have as much access to help with the enrollment process, Nevada Health Link's call center has extended its weekend hours through the end of Open Enrollment on December 15. The call center will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST on Saturday, Dec. 7, Sunday, Dec. 8, and Saturday, Dec. 14 and will remain open until 11:59 p.m. PST on Sunday, Dec. 15.

The QHPs available through Nevada Health Link are required to cover the ten essential health benefits which include maternity and newborn care, mental health, preventive care and pediatric dental care. Nevadans who do not qualify for Medicaid, Medicare, or do not have insurance through their employer are eligible to enroll for insurance through Nevada Health Link’s State Based Exchange portal. According to a recent report from the Guinn Center, there are approximately 77,000 residents in Nevada who qualify for subsidies and tax credits that can pay for costs of insurance. These subsidies and tax credits are available only through Nevada Health Link.

Fortunately, consumers have several options to help them sign up for a health plan that fits their needs and budget, thanks to the help of enrollment professionals in their own neighborhoods. With easy-to-access locations including the Galleria Mall and the Boulevard Mall, Nevadans should make an appointment today or simply walk in to speak with a licensed broker or agent. Consumers can also enroll and purchase health or dental plans on NevadaHealthLink.com through midnight December 15.

Below is a list of Nevada Health Link’s broker grantee locations, as well as a list of certified enrollment counselor locations where Nevadans can find in person enrollment assistance.
