Special Enrollment Periods allow for health insurance coverage enrollment any time during the year
Did you miss the opportunity to enroll in a Qualified Health Plan through Nevada Health Link? Although the deadline to enroll in coverage ended December 15, 2018 you or a loved one may be eligible to enroll now if you report a life or income change. Qualifying life events include having a baby, getting married, experiencing a change in income, or getting divorced. Nevada Health Link encourages you to contact an enrollment professional to find out if a qualifying life event could allow you to enroll during a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). Please keep in mind that if you qualify for an SEP, you usually have up to 60 days following the event to enroll in a plan. "There are many residents who don't realize that while there is a specific window for Open Enrollment, there are QLEs that allow them to sign up for health insurance year-round," said Heather Korbulic, executive director of the Exchange. "We can't emphasize enough how important it is to safeguard yourself with insurance, because all it takes is one visit to the hospital to put many families into bankruptcy. There are various brokers and navigators statewide available to assist Nevada residents in evaluating their needs and determining the best course of action to finding comprehensive coverage."
