CARSON CITY, Nev. – Nevadans shopping for health care coverage for 2021 still have time to enroll in a plan under the Affordable Care Act – the deadline is January 15.
The Silver State Health Insurance Exchange – which operates through its online marketplace, Nevada Health Link – opted to give residents more time to decide on a plan this year. The deadline used to be December 15, according to the agency’s Communications Officer Janel Davis.
She said while health insurance has always been a top-of-mind priority for many Nevadans, the pandemic has brought the importance of coverage even more to the forefront. She said she hopes the extended enrollment period will help folks who lost their jobs in 2020 stay covered.
