LAS VEGAS, Nov. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Beginning November 1, 2020 through January 15, 2021, Nevada residents may select Ambetter from SilverSummit Healthplan for healthcare coverage statewide through the state’s Health Insurance Marketplace, Nevada Health Link. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to place an extra emphasis on health, SilverSummit Healthplan continues to offer a variety of health insurance offerings that are among the most affordable in the state.

“We value our members and remain committed to offering quality, dependable healthcare coverage plans through Ambetter from SilverSummit Healthplan especially amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” said Eric Schmacker, President and CEO, SilverSummit Healthplan. “As part of the nation’s Number 1 Marketplace insurer, we have the experience and resources to provide Nevada residents with insurance options that provide peace of mind and allow them to take charge of their health with affordable health care options.”

Ambetter from SilverSummit Healthplan offers increased value, convenient services, and benefits that help make health insurance fit within people’s lives. For those impacted by job loss during the pandemic, Ambetter from SilverSummit Healthplan provides an alternative that is often more affordable than COBRA, the health insurance program that allows people to continue their employer-provided coverage. While COBRA maintains a person’s existing coverage, they will pay 100% of the cost plus an additional 2% in administrative costs, and subsidies are not available to reduce those costs. COBRA will also eventually expire, requiring a person to seek new coverage.

Valuable Rewards Program
Members have access to the My Health Pays® program, where they can earn points for practicing healthy eating habits, moving more, saving smart, and being well. Through the program, members can complete health-related activities and challenges. Members can earn $500 in rewards* in 2021. These rewards can be used for health-related expenses such as copays, deductibles, and more. My Health Pays® also allows members to set and reach health goals at their own pace by providing seasonal suggestions for activities and guidance to help stay on track.

Online Enrollment Assistance
Through the Ambetter from SilverSummit Healthplan website, people can browse and compare coverage options, determine their eligibility for financial subsidies, and directly enroll in coverage – all from one place. The platform is built for mobile access as well, so people can enroll using their smartphones. If a person is unable to complete enrollment all at once, the system will save their progress and provide reminders to finish enrollment at their convenience.

Access to Telehealth
Ambetter Telehealth provides convenient, 24-hour access to in-network Ambetter healthcare providers for non-emergency health issues. With a $0 copay**, members can get medical advice, a diagnosis, or a prescription via phone or video, without having to leave their homes. The service also allows them to upload images that can support their doctor consultation, and a summary of the visit can be shared with their primary care provider.

Affordable and Reliable Coverage
Ambetter from SilverSummit Healthplan provides coverage for all of the essential health benefits, including preventive and wellness services, maternity and newborn care, pediatric services, mental health services, hospitalizations, prescription drug coverage, and more.
