Nevada needs a public health insurance option

We won! The Governor signed it into law on Wednesday.

Nevada needs a public health insurance option

Too many Nevadans are struggling to afford the health insurance and care they need. Nevada needs a public option now. Vote for SB420.

Why is this important?

Even before the pandemic, 1 in 7 Nevadans did not have health insurance. Layoffs and business closures have made this problem worse. We must take action and pass the Nevada Public Option to ensure that every Nevadan has better access to affordable, quality healthcare.

A public option would save Nevada families on their premiums and out-of-pocket costs by leveraging the state’s bargaining power to negotiate lower prices for healthcare services and prescription drugs.

A public option will increase the amount of compensated care in rural Nevada, providing much needed funding for our state’s rural hospitals.

The Nevada public option will lower insurance premiums and help more Nevadans get the critical care they need, when they need it.
