Washington, D.C. – As open enrollment season kicks into full gear, U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) is encouraging Nevadans to sign up for health care on the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange before the December 15th deadline. In a video, Senator Cortez Masto stresses the importance of reviewing available plans to select one that best suits each individual’s or family’s needs.
Senator Cortez Masto’s remarks as prepared for delivery:
Hi, Catherine Cortez Masto here.
As the holiday season approaches, Nevadans are preparing to celebrate with family and friends, enjoying the beauty of the changing seasons, and reflecting on what we are thankful for. One thing I know many of us are thankful for is our health.
That’s why I am here to remind you that it’s time to consider your health insurance options on the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange. Nevadans have from now until December 15th to visit NevadaHealthLink.com or call 855-7NVLINK – that’s 855-768-5465 – and select an insurance plan that meets their needs. Free, in-person assistance is available in most languages to help you sign up.
Health insurance isn’t a luxury; it’s a basic necessity. Too often, unexpected medical bills can cause financial hardship or even lead to bankruptcy. Nevadans shouldn’t be forced to decide between paying for their medical bills and putting food on the table.
That’s why the Affordable Care Act is such a game-changer. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, Nevadans can purchase affordable, comprehensive health insurance plans on the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange and coverage is available at a reduced or no cost for most families.
So please visit NevadaHealthLink.com or call 855-7NVLINK – again, that’s 855-768-5465 – to enroll, re-enroll, or change your insurance plan to one that better suits your needs. The holiday season can be hectic, so make sure you make time to look at your health insurance options before open enrollment ends on December 15th.
