You can enroll through Nevada Health Link if you're a freelancer, consultant, independent contractor, or other self-employed worker who doesn't have any employees.
You're considered self-employed if you have a business that takes in income but doesn't have any employees other than yourself, a spouse, or a family member.
When you apply through Nevada Health Link:
- You'll find out if you qualify for premium tax credits and other savings on a health plan. This will be based on your income and household size.
You can choose from several categories of coverage from Nevada Health Link, from plans with low premiums that mainly protect you in worst-case scenarios to plans where you'll pay more each month but less out-of-pocket when you get health care services.
You can also apply for coverage through Medicaid based on your income. Check if you qualify here.
Self-employment income and Nevada Health Link savings:
- When you fill out a Nevada Health Link application, you'll have to estimate your net self-employment income. Nevada Health Link savings are based on your estimated net income for the year you're getting coverage, not last year's income. See Reporting self-employment income to Nevada Health Link.
