Participating carriers in the area (for 2018 Marketplace coverage) include CareSource, Medical Mutual, Molina, and Ambetter. Additional companies, such as UnitedHealthcare, National General, HCC Life, and IAC Group offer temporary "off-Exchange" contracts that can be purchased outside of Open Enrollment periods. SummaCare, Oscar, Paramount, and AultCare offer plans outside of Clark County. UnitedHealthcare, Humana, Cigna and Aetna offer Group and Senior products, although they may return in 2019 to offer under-65 products, depending upon possible Administration changes.
The highest availability for coverage is Bronze, Silver, and Gold contracts.
