Biden’s Executive Order, relative to the ongoing COVID-19 national emergency Uninsured Nevadans will have 90 more days to enroll in a qualified health plan for 2021 coverage, Feb. 15 through August 1

Carson City, Nev. – The Silver State Health Insurance Exchange (Exchange), the state agency that connects Nevadans to qualified health plans compliant with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) through the online State Based Exchange (SBE) known as Nevada Health Link, announces a 90-day Special Enrollment Period (SEP) for uninsured Nevadans, starting February 15 through August 1, 2021. The SEP is in accordance with the Executive Order issued by President Biden last month, in response to the ongoing national emergency presented by COVID-19. 

Uninsured Nevadans will have 90 days – Feb. 15 through 11:59 p.m. on Aug. 1 – to submit an application for health insurance on Nevada Health Link. This SEP is available for any Nevadan who missed the Open Enrollment Period and is uninsured; please note existing enrollees will NOT have the opportunity to shop and change their current plan. The Exchange is the only place Nevadans can qualify for subsidies to help offset the cost of insurance premiums. Four out of five Nevadans who purchase a plan through Nevada Health Link qualify for financial assistance (tax credits).   

If you are currently enrolled in a health insurance plan, DO NOT cancel your policy until you confirm your eligibility for this Special Enrollment period.
