Nevada Insurance Enrollment Explains Why The State of Nevada Is Leaving HealthCare.gov

eTradeWire News/10541376
Switching to GetInsured Will Save Nevadans Money With Health Insurance Enrollment

LAS VEGAS - eTradeWire -- Later this year, Nevada's health insurance enrollment platform will go live. Rather than purchasing government-subsidized individual health insurance plans through HealthCare.gov, Nevada residents will purchase them through a state-run enrollment platform. While ample preparation has gone into ensuring that this transition is as smooth as possible, Nevadans may still want to seek out free assistance with signing up for health insurance from a Nevada Insurance Enrollment health insurance agent.

There are several reasons for the transition away from HealthCare.gov. Ultimately, the goal is to provide Nevadans with more affordable health insurance coverage, easier access to the plans that they need and to maintain the state's autonomy.

Reducing Health Insurance Costs

The primary reason for the switch is to reduce the operating costs paid by the state for use of a health insurance enrollment platform. Last year, the federal government charged states that had a state-run exchange but used the HealthCare.gov enrollment platform, including Nevada, a fee that is equal to about 2% of the cost of premiums. In 2019, that fee increased to 3% of the cost of premiums.

While this is still lower than the fee paid by states that rely fully on the federally run exchange, the cost is considerable. Nevada Health Link projected that leasing costs to use HealthCare.gov would be well over $13 million by the year 2020. According to Nevada's exchange leadership, the state-run platform uses better technology and will be a far more cost-effective option than paying a fee to continue using HealthCare.gov.
