Special Enrollment Period for Exchange


On March 17, 2020, Nevada Health Link announced a special enrollment period (SEP) for individuals seeking health insurance on the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange. The SEP was initiated as a result of Gov. Sisolak’s March 12, 2020, Emergency Declaration due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The SEP runs from March 17, 2020, through April 15, 2020, and is available to anyone who has not previously enrolled in a plan on the exchange in 2020. It does not provide an opportunity to change plans on the exchange.

Employers with employees located in Nevada should be aware of this option in the event that they terminate or furlough employees who may lose their health coverage and need to enroll in a plan on the exchange.
