Carson City, NV - October 06, 2016
Nevadans who purchase health
insurance on their own or as a small business can now view prices for the
approved 2017 health insurance plans online by visiting healthrates.doi.nv.gov.
The Nevada Division of Insurance
has posted approved 2017 rates for all plans in the Individual and Small group
markets online, giving Nevada’s consumers an opportunity to begin shopping for
a health insurance policy before Open Enrollment begins on November 1, 2016.
“We encourage Nevada consumers to
take the time to compare all of the plans applicable to them in order to get
the best plan for themselves and their families,” said Insurance Commissioner
Barbara Richardson. “Even consumers who already have health insurance coverage
should compare plans because there are always new products being offered on and
off the Exchange.”
In plan year 2017 there are 16
insurance companies offering plans on and off the Exchange. Consumers will have
124 separate plan options to choose from in the individual market and employers
can select from nearly 400 small group plans.
On November 1, 2016, the Division
will be posting the policy forms for each individual and small group plan.
These will include the Schedule of Benefits and Evidence of Coverage, as well
as links to the drug formulary and the medical provider network.
To view the rates and plan
information, visit www.doi.nv.gov, click on
Health Insurance Rates in the main navigation menu. From the “Health Insurance
Rate Review” page, click on “Search for Health Insurance Rates.”
Rates are displayed by age and
county, and are for non-smokers. The search results are displayed and then sortable
by plan name, carrier name, metal tier, and whether it is offered on or off the
Exchange. This allows the search to be limited for quicker focused results.
