From the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange:

Consumers who enrolled in a health plan through Nevada Health Link and paid their first month premium by the deadline will have health insurance coverage beginning January 1, 2014. Those who enrolled close to the deadline will not receive an insurance card from the carrier by January 1, 2014.

Individuals who need to seek medical attention prior to receiving their insurance card are urged to call their insurance company after January 1, 2014 and before they visit a doctor, clinic or hospital. The insurance company will be able to verify enrollment and confirm that the doctor or medical facility they wish to visit is in the company's network.

Those who seek medical attention from an out of network doctor or hospital may incur higher out of pocket costs or the service may not be covered. All Nevada Health Link customers are urged to verify that the doctors and facilities they plan to visit are in their plan's network.

Those who missed the December enrollment and payment deadlines will have coverage effective February 1, 2014 if they enroll and pay by January 15.

Individuals applying for Medicaid and/or Nevada Checkup through Nevada Health Link are not subject to the Nevada Health Link enrollment deadlines.
