ATTENTION: Important Deadline Approaching for Members of Friday Health Plans  

Remaining Members Must Enroll in a New Health Insurance Plan by August 31 to Avoid a Gap in Coverage

Carson City, NV – The Nevada Division of Insurance (Division) urges any members of Friday Health Plans of Nevada (FHP-N) who have not yet enrolled in a new health insurance plan to do so by Thursday, August 31, 2023 to avoid a gap in coverage.

Enrollees of Friday Health Plans automatically qualify for a special enrollment period allowing them to shop for and enroll in a new plan on NevadaHealthLink.com, where they can take advantage of qualifying tax credits or subsidies.

Nevada Health Link’s special enrollment period is open now through October 31, 2023 for any Nevadan who lost their FHP-N health insurance, including those with plans on or off the Marketplace. For enrollment assistance consumers can visit Nevada Health Link’s assistance look-up tool or call 1-800-847-2927.

Consumers who fail to enroll in a new health plan by August 31 will still have until October 31, 2023, to purchase health insurance, but they will experience a gap in coverage.
