website at doi.nv.gov. The website provides Nevada
consumers with comprehensive information about insurance and healthcare reform

insurance to their employees, how to purchase health insurance, how the law has
affected health insurance coverage and much more.

protection is education and our new website and guide do just that. I encourage
anyone with questions about insurance to visit our new website, check out the
great consumer information we have available and call our office if you still
have any questions.”
