The Nevada Health CO-OP is a not-for-profit health insurance company governed by its members. Premium dollars and profits will stay in Nevada for the benefit of Nevadans.

The CO-OP is focused on providing health insurance for all Nevadans. We offer a wide range of on-exchange and off-exchange health insurance plans to individuals, families and small and large groups.

Being “Simply Better” is the mission of the CO-OP. Leadership is creating a set of simple not-for-profit, consumer-owned health insurance plans that work easily for patients, doctors, employers, brokers and our members with easier administrative processes.

Headquartered in the heart of Las Vegas, the CO-OP is sponsored by self-funded insurance groups that have a long history and proven track record of over 30 years of success with providing excellent and affordable, member-focused healthcare for diverse populations in Las Vegas.


A health CO-OP is a consumer-operated and -oriented plan. While a health CO-OP is new to
Nevada, other CO-OPs are not. It is much like a credit union because members own it.

The Nevada Health CO-OP is an alternative healthcare insurance provider created under the Affordable
Care Act (ACA). Each state had the opportunity to have a private, non-profit group apply to develop a health CO-OP specifically for their state. The CO-OP is controlled by Nevadans and is only available to Nevadans. All income from insurance premiums are spent on providing and improving quality healthcare for members of the CO-OP right here in Nevada.

The CO-OP has received both low-cost startup and solvency loans totaling $65.9 million, which will be repaid within 5 years and 15 years respectively.

Our Philosophy

The Nevada Health CO-OP’s philosophy includes the belief that members do better when they can access appropriate healthcare in a timely manner.

Hello from the Nevada Health CO-OP! We are here for those in need of health insurance in Nevada.
The Nevada Health CO-OP is a not-for-profit health insurance option created under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We believe that health insurance should be personal and be about people helping people. The Nevada Health CO-OP is here for one reason: to simplify health insurance.
We offer a wide range of plans to suit every need and budget. So no matter what part of Nevada you call home—Reno, Pahrump, Elko or Las Vegas, health insurance can be affordable.

Nevada Health Insurance Coverage by Nevadans, for Nevadans

Unlike many Nevada health insurance companies, the CO-OP is for all Nevadans—individuals, families or small or large groups of any size. It doesn’t matter whether you have insurance today or not. You also cannot be excluded due to a pre-existing condition.
When signing up for health insurance with the Nevada Health CO-OP, you will have access to great benefits and services. Benefits do vary based on the plan you choose and certain eligibility features. The most basic of plan benefits include:

  • Free co-pays for many doctor visits
  • Free co-pays for approved medications
  • Free check-ups and free screenings to promote better overall health

Any legal resident of Nevada can join the CO-OP no matter what kind of job they have. Once you enroll in our low cost health insurance, the Nevada Health CO-OP will welcome you as a member and you will be able to start getting the care that you, your family and your employees deserve. Whether it’s a simple check-up or more specialized care, our premier provider networks will give you more high-quality care options than you’ve ever had.

Should you ever have any questions about your enrollment, membership or healthcare, we’re just a click or call away. When it comes to the Nevada Health CO-OP, affordable health insurance doesn’t have to be impersonal health insurance.

We Strive To Make Healthcare Simply Better

The bottom line is that we understand you need healthcare. When you’re in pain and in need of treatment, the last thing you want to do is get the traditional “run-around” from some low cost health insurance company. That’s why we provide great health insurance plans, large provider networks and some of the best customer service on the market. You can buy health insurance anywhere, but you can’t experience healthcare like this anywhere else.
