Individual and Family Plans
Hometown Health Plan offers policies to individuals and families all year, as approved by the Nevada Division of Insurance. If someone applies for a policy during Open Enrollment, the plan will start on January 1st. Mid-year, people can still get coverage when it is not Open Enrollment. For people who experienced a timely Qualifying Life Event, they can get a policy starting on the first day of the next calendar month.

Most states do not allow consumers to enroll in coverage mid-year without a Qualifying Life Event. In Nevada, people can get a Hometown Health plan mid-year without one of these special circumstances. Because of this, people in this situation can apply for a Hometown Health plan following a 90 day waiting period. After the application and initial payment is submitted to Hometown, the policy will start on the first of the month following 90 days. You can get a free quote on our website here.
