You may not enroll in a health plan through Nevada Health Link if you are currently incarcerated, but you may do so after you are released. For purposes of Nevada Health Link, "incarcerated" means serving a term in prison or jail.
Incarceration doesn't include being on probation, parole, or home confinement.
You're not considered incarcerated if you're in jail or prison, but haven't been convicted of a crime.
After you're released, you have a 60-day Special Enrollment Period to sign up for private health coverage. During this time, you can enroll in private health insurance even if it's outside Nevada Health Link's Open Enrollment Period. Learn more about enrollment periods.
After the Special Enrollment Period, you will not be able to buy private health insurance until the next Open Enrollment Period (unless you qualify for another Special Enrollment Period).
If you're in jail or prison but have not been convicted of a crime, you can create an account or log in to use Nevada Health Link to buy a private health insurance plan.
