CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada's health insurance exchange goes live on Tuesday but consumers may be wise to wait until the kinks are worked out and all the functions of the Internet website are running smoothly.
There is no rush to buy. Insurance can be purchased before Dec. 15 for coverage to take effect Jan. 1. Enrollment will remain open through the end of March.
A lot of critical information consumers will need to make an informed choice that won't be released until Tuesday - the same day the exchange debuts. Design plans detailing which doctors, hospitals and other health care providers are participating in individual insurance networks will be released then.
Nevada's exchange website, called Nevada Health Link, can be found at www.nevadahealthlink.com .
