LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Nevada Division of Insurance announced Tuesday the 2020 approved Health Insurance Rates for all plans in the market as well as the new healthcare portal where consumers will purchase their medical insurance plans. 

Shoppers will enroll at NevadaHealthLink.com and no longer on HealthCare.gov. 

The department is encouraging consumers to review the portal and the rate increases before open enrollment begins on November 1, 2019.  

Seven companies will offer health insurance with as many as 60 plans to choose from on and off the online market known as Exchange. The approved rate increase for both on and off the Exchange is 1.7% to 1.9%.

“Every year the Division publishes this information in advance so that consumers have an opportunity to preview plans and their rates,” said Insurance Commissioner Barbara Richardson. “This is a good time to begin comparing available plans and to visit the new State Exchange website to be better prepared for Open Enrollment.”

  • Health Plan of Nevada
  • Silver Summit Health Plan Inc. 
  • HMO Colorado Inc. dba HMO Nevada

INSURANCE COMPANIES OFF THE HEALTH EXCHANGE
