Looking for Health Insurance?


Many Nevada families purchase family health insurance, but others need to buy child only health insurance. This could be because the parents have group coverage at work, the parents have no coverage, a court order from a divorce, the children are cared for by a grandparent, or a variety of other reasons. Today’s families have new ways to get affordable health insurance for children only, and it might be helpful to review these.

At Secure Health Options, we help Nevada families find affordable health insurance for kids, adults, and senior citizens. You can start by entering your ZIP code in our handy online form to see competitive quotes for your area. Please call us if you have questions or need help enrolling.

Nevada Health Insurance for Babies, Children, and Teens

Before selecting coverage for your family members, it might be helpful to understand some facts about Nevada health insurance. Many children in this state are covered by public and private plans, but some are still uninsured.

  • Percentage of Nevadans under 18: 24.1
  • Medicaid and CHIP applications: Children must wait until applications are processed before getting covered, and there may be a long waiting period.
  • Medicaid and CHIP eligibility: These programs cover Nevada children from families with an income up to 205 percent of the poverty level as of 2014.

Meanwhile, the Affordable Care Act offers private health insurance subsidies for many families with incomes between 100 and 400 percent of the poverty level, no child can be turned down because of a pre-existing health issue, and the application process is fairly simple and fast.

Which is the Best Nevada Health Insurance for Children?
