Nevada Health Link will permit a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) due to Medicaid/CHIP assessment application or a Medicaid application submitted during Open Enrollment and denial after Open Enrollment has ended. Consumers who applied to either Nevada Health Link coverage or Medicaid/Children's Health Insurance Program(CHIP) coverage through the Nevada Division of Welfare and Supportive Services during a period of open enrollment but were unable to enroll in coverage while awaiting a Medicaid/CHIP determination, may meet the criteria for this SEP. Other general eligibility requirements still apply.
Consumers who are denied Medicaid/CHIP must report the denial and select a plan within 60 days after their denial date of Medicaid/CHIP, and then be able to verify that their denial stems from an application to either agency that originated during the Nevada Health Link open enrollment period.
Documents indicating the denial and confirming an application submission date within an open enrollment period must be submitted within 30 days of picking a plan on Nevada Health Link. Nevada Health Link application dates from consumer accounts, may be used to verify exchange application dates during an open enrollment period.
Coverage will begin, if premium paid the first day of month after you pick a plan.
Need a different start date? If you originally applied through the Marketplace, contact the Nevada Health Link call center and request that your coverage start be moved back to the date it would have started if Nevada Health Link had originally determined you eligible for a Marketplace plan.
