Approved 2017 Health Insurance Rates are Now Available Online

CARSON CITY, NV – 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.
