Comprehensive health insurance is the type of insurance coverage that covers the cost of medical and surgical expenses of an insured. Nevada Silver Life and Health Insurance Agency has many options for your family’s individual health insurance. Plans can be purchased privately or through the Nevada State Exchange Marketplace, Nevada Health Link, where you can receive premium tax credits towards your premium depending on your annual household income.

How do I know which plan is right for me? Why can’t you just pick one for me?
We begin with a thorough review of:
- your current doctors or specialists you will need in the near future

- lastly Pricing, making sure you can financially afford the plan you choose
We want to make sure that your plan is the best fit for you.
