Nevada Health Link

If Nevada can't secure health coverage for rural counties, thousands will be losing health insurance by next year.

Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray sat down with the head of The Silver State Health Insurance Exchange program to find out what happened.

  Open enrollment for the state-run health exchange is underway, and Tuesday, Dec. 15 is the last day to register for people who want coverage beginning January 1st. Reno Public Radio's Julia Ritchey has more details.

So far this year, more than 23,000 Nevadans have chosen insurance plans through Nevada Health Link.

"And over 8,000 of those are new consumers, who are people who did not choose exchange plans last year."

Roughly 10,000 Nevadans have signed up for health plans through the state insurance exchange so far this enrollment period for coverage starting January 1st. But Reno Public Radio's Michelle Bliss reports that tens of thousands of others, who signed up in the past, could end up having their federal subsidies delayed for not re-enrolling this time around.
