Competition in Healthcare Keeps Costs Down
The Affordable Care Act has brought health insurance to more Americans than ever before. However, while access to care has improved, the entire system is still inefficient, unreliable and cost-prohibitive. Among the primary causes of this persistent problem is the lack of competition. Consumers still have limited options when it comes to health insurance and health care providers.

More Health Insurance Options in 2020
Traditionally, short-term health insurance plans have been used during times of transition, allowing people to keep health insurance coverage while they’re waiting to obtain long-term comprehensive coverage. In most cases, limited-duration health insurance policies were available for three-month periods. However, as of this current date, 11/15/2019, these plans can be extended to 6 months in Nevada. The plans cannot be renewed. They do not provide pre-existing coverage, most wellness, and Rx is limited. The short term plans, however, provide great coverage for things that happen suddenly and unexpectedly. This option does provide Nevadans with some real insurance protection that is less expensive than an ACA plan. We caution, however, they are not a long term substitute for an ACA plan.
10/1/2019 Changed Everything For Nevadans
Prior to 10/1/2019, insurance companies were required to offer insurance to anyone covering pre-existing conditions with a 90 day wait, but that option is no longer available. This is why “Open Enrollment” from 11/1 to 12/15 of each year is more important than ever.
