It’s that time of year! No, we’re not talking about the holidays. While Christmas, Hanukah and New Year’s are all very important, this week you should be focusing a little less on mistletoe and holly and a little more on your health! That’s because open enrollment for Nevada Health Link is just about coming to a close! In fact, if you’re hoping to have coverage starting January 1, you should know that December 15 is your deadline for enrolling.
We’ll repeat that: If you want to be covered by a health plan starting January 1, you need to enroll in a plan by next Tuesday (December 15)!
The Cost of Your Healthcare Plan
If you’ve been procrastinating enrolling in a healthcare plan because of the cost, take heart; your 2016 health insurance plans likely costs less than you think. In fact, about 8 out of 10 people who enroll in Nevada Health Link actually qualify for healthcare subsidies, which can substantially lower your monthly premium.
If you don’t enroll in a healthcare plan by the December 15 deadline, it could actually cost you more. Unless you have an exemption for 2016, you could face a fine on your taxes. In 2016, that penalty will be higher than ever before.
